“Loretto definitely taught me the skills to work towards all these accomplishments, but another tremendous influence has been the friendship I got at Loretto. I still keep in close contact with friends I made, even some that I met back in 7th grade. We all encourage and support one another with which ever paths we make for ourselves. Being a part of a community in a way that fosters the spirit of education, and that honors individual and collective health are what drives my choices professionally and personally. I am grateful for the academic experience I had at Loretto, and for the relationships and community I get to carry with me.”
