Born in California and raised in Illinois, Erin is the 2nd oldest of 8 in a crazy cool Catholic family. Erin attended Franciscan University of Steubenville and studied Theology and Catechetics with a concentration in Youth Ministry. After graduation, Erin left for France to discern religious life with the Apostolic Sisters of St. John for 8 years. After a long but good discernment, Erin saw that the Lord was not calling her to follow Him as a lay person and came back to America grateful and fluent in French! Prior to joining the St. John Paul II Catholic Campus Ministry, Erin spent 2 years as the Campus Minister at the St Joseph Newman Center at Bradley University in Illinois.

Favorite saints: St Maximillian Kolbe, St Josephine Bahkita and St Joan of Arc are a few of the saints that she walks with daily in life.
