This is Madison!
Madison is the Youth Minister that runs JOY!
She has her BA from Saint Mary's College of California (#GoGaels) in Theology & Religious Studies as well as English. She is currently pursuing her MA at The University of Chicago's Divinity School where she studies Moral Theology and Ethics, specifically around disability. She's got plenty of youth ministry (and a little bit of middle school teaching) experience under her belt!
Madison loves reading, writing, boxing, and tea. But she MOST loves talking to people about how Catholic Social Teaching shows us exactly how to make the world a better place for everyone in it. When you email JOY, she's who answers! So if you have any questions, don't be afraid to reach out!
