Hi friends! My name is Meredith – I graduated from Gonzaga in 2015 and I’m so thrilled to be back at Gonzaga working in the office that helped me find and follow a calling to mission and ministry work. After I graduated from Gonzaga, I spent a year in Camden, NJ as a Jesuit Volunteer where I lived in community with 4 wonderful humans and worked as a campus minister and “transportation specialist” (aka 12-passenger van driver) at Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School. Then I got a Master’s in Theology and Certificate in Pastoral Ministry from Villanova University where I got to bring my love for a faith that does justice into the classroom and into further campus ministry work. Villanova basketball could never replace the Zags in my heart, so when I got the opportunity to return to GU, I was thrilled. Now I get to walk with students and hear their stories as they ask big questions, learn about their faith and themselves, grow in love, and laugh a lot. What a dream job.
When I’m not in the office, you can find me rock climbing, watching the sunset on High Drive, testing out a new recipe, reading 3 books at a time, walking my dog Junie B. Jones around Manito Park, or hanging out with my friends. I could chat all day about all things pop culture: what we’re watching on Netflix, new music, how Lizzo is a prophet, you name it.
