Hello! My name is Jon Wisnieski. I am a graduate student studying theology in the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity’s lay program. I hail from Des Moines, Iowa, and did my undergraduate and graduate work in finance and sports business at the University of Iowa, where I also played football. During my time there I rediscovered the depth and beauty of my childhood Catholic faith. A desire to grow in my understanding of this faith and deepen my relationship with Jesus Christ has led me to St. Thomas. In my free time I enjoy hiking, photography, reading books on philosophy and theology, talking sports and watching the Hawkeyes, and spending time with family and friends. I have been told that I can appear intimidating to people who don’t know me, I promise you that is only an appearance! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you see me around campus.
Hello! My name is Anne Malloy. I am a sophomore studying Elementary Education and minoring in Theology. You can often find me curled up with a good book or busy at my sewing machine. I love connecting with others on campus and building relationships rooted in faith. I would love to meet you, don’t hesitate to say hello if you see me around!
Hello! My name is Katy Shimp, and I’m from the great state of Wisconsin. I am currently a sophomore, double-majoring in Catholic Studies and Spanish with a concentration in Cultural and Literary Studies. If you bump into me around campus (and I’m not doing homework), the odds are that I am playing frisbee or at the gym, gearing up for a hike, catching up with friends over coffee, or praying at Sitzmann :) The biggest part of who I am, is my relationship with Jesus Christ. I would be nothing without Christ; He is the sole thing my life revolves around and as I learn to love Him better, my own heart burns to bring others to know Him in their own hearts. This fuels my love for meeting new people and having deep conversations - so never hesitate to say hello...I’ll greet you with a smile and probably say something silly!
