She is a former Program Director of the Narnia Clubs (now Adeo) in NYC and has been a teacher, speaker, retreat leader and catechist for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. For several years she also served in leadership in the Frassati Fellowship in NYC. In 2016 her mother was struck with a mystery illness and Grace left NYC to become her full-time caregiver in upstate NY.
