Elementary and Middle School Formation Coordinator
My name is Jessica Derks and I am so excited to work as the Elementary/Middle School Formation Coordinator. I attended Ave Maria University in Florida for my first two years of college and was an education major. Then, I attended Viterbo University for their theater program. After one year I realized that I was being called to do something different with my career. So I turned to God, prayed that He would find me a new college, and if He did, I would become a Theology major for Him. God quickly found the University of Mary and a year and a half later I graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in Theology. I am the youngest of three children and I come from a family of active Catholics who live their faith, and have inspired me to live a life of holiness every day. I have a fluffy, elderly cat named Ceddy. I love photography and adoration. I am excited to see where God takes me, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to become a part of the Holy Family community.
