Resources for Catholic Families
As a practicing, faithful Roman Catholic, I approach my college prep consulting work as a ministry. God created every single person with unique gifts, talents, and calls on his or her life. I pray for all of my clients and their families and seek to use the gifts God has given me to serve my clients as they discern their vocations and what sort of work they are here to do.
