About the Presenter

Sr. Bernadette was born and raised in Southern California and is one of six siblings.  She participated in youth, high school and collegiate athletics and was a recreation coordinator prior to dropping everything to serve as a lay missionary.  She thought she would be living with other young adult lay missionaries but found herself living in a convent with a bunch of sisters. That year turned everything upside down for her, and she decided to enter religious life with the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco in 2005. She has a special place in her heart for accompanying young adults on their journey from her own experience in college campus ministry and young adult ministry.  Her ministry experience includes young adult ministry, high school and college campus ministry, athletics, youth faith formation, outreach ministry, and fundraising and is presently serving as the Province Director of Mission Advancement in San Antonio, Texas.
