"What is it that you plan to do/ with your one wild and precious life?" (Mary Oliver)
I am a grad student in theology at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN; married to my best friend for almost a decade; doggie-mama to Fiona, and hoping to adopt. I live with chronic pain, illness, infertility, and have dealt with severe depression and PTSD, as well as the losses of my mom and dad. I have, however, been reunited with my birthmom! Although I still struggle with many of the losses and challenges I've experienced, I am grateful that I have experienced so much love and so many blessings. I am hoping to be a writer and hospice chaplain after graduation, and we are also hoping to adopt from foster-care!
