Where do you find inspiration for your work?
I draw inspiration from the countless zealous, Catholic, women leaders who have come before me, such as Dorothy Day and St. Louise de Marillac. I am also very inspired by my generation’s zero-tolerance policy for hatred and injustice.
What do you love outside of work?
