Andy is a member of St. Joseph’s Parish in Lincoln, NE and was raised Catholic. She first heard of SoulCore through a friend from church who thought it would be a great addition to the work Andy was doing to combine food, faith and fitness in her business. She was intrigued, but merely kept the idea in the back of her head for the next few years. During that time she hosted and attended leadership retreats and felt the Holy Spirit tugging her to check out SoulCore as a way to enhance the experience and align with her passion for equipping leaders mind, body and soul.
She and a friend purchased the digital downloads and each began the practice at home supporting each other long distance. She quickly fell in love with the focus on not just the Mysteries of the Rosary, but the virtues attached to the mysteries, which are the true bridge between Christ’s life and our life. With much encouragement from friends, Andy attended the leadership retreat in Buffalo, NY. She then spent the next few months offering free weekly sessions at her church to practice and discern becoming certified. The group has been well received with attendance from her home parish, neighboring parishes and non-Catholics alike. She is excited to grow the live practice in her local area and share with others on her travels.
Andy was one of the first students to attend St. Joseph’s School K – 8 and is grateful to have her daughters now attend the same school. She is involved as a proclaimer of the Word, a children’s liturgy leader, confirmation coordinator, and a member of the perpetual adoration ministry. Beyond her parish, she is a new member of the Unbound Deliverance Ministry for the Diocese of Lincoln team.
She’s been married to Phillip for 11 years and in addition to volunteering she enjoys reading, traveling, golfing and cooking.
