Assistant Professor Religious Studies


What would you like a prospective student to know most about Rosemont? 

I would like prospective students to reflect upon two ideas:

1.) that student life is important, but that the library is where true joy and excitement lives on a college campus.

2.) that collegiate studies are meant to challenge, broaden, and unsettle everything we think we knew; this may be frightening, but it is also life-giving.

If you could give an award to someone, who would you give it to and why? – Pope Francis, Nobel Peace Prize.



Campus Involvement: Religious Studies, Attends weekly Mass at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception
