Though growing up as a cultural Catholic only, Jenna fell in love with Christ and His Bride, the Church, while in High School. Through the sacraments and the rosary, she learned of the beauty and fulfilling nature of a relationship with Christ, and it did not take long for her to want to share this joy with others. In 2018 Jenna enrolled in The Catholic University of America to study History and Secondary Education. Her life’s plan did not take the route she had expected and in August 2020, Jenna entered as a postulant with The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. After living almost two years as a religious sister, the Lord once again asked Jenna to follow Him in a new way and leave the convent to return to the world. Jenna returned to her studies at The Catholic University of America and is expected to graduate in May 2023 with a degree in History and Secondary Education. Jenna is very excited to take all her experience in religious formation and the zeal she has for helping others discover who they are meant to be to the GIVEN Institute this year.
