Jenny Bernal de Baker


“I needed to have a graduate degree. I needed to learn more. I needed to really challenge what I had learned ... but then also acquire new skills, a new understanding of things. I knew that social work is what I wanted to do, but I also realized that my desire for theology and learning about God, learning about my faith was extremely important as well. ... The program at STM has a Hispanic ministry track, and since that’s my background culturally and that’s where I see myself serving, I just thought it was a really excellent opportunity. At the same time, the social work program has a Latino leadership initiative. So it can't really get any more perfect than that.”
