Hello! I’m Kristin Soni, your Director of Campus Ministry. I am returning to Catholic education after a 7-year hiatus staying at home to parent my 7 and 4-year-old boys, Henry & Julian. Throughout the years I've also worked part-time as a preschool music teacher/children's performer, an elementary school librarian, and I also have a side hustle selling global handmade, fair-trade jewelry and accessories.
In 2001, after graduating from LMU with a BA in Sociology/Theology, I began working professionally in high school & college ministry. I've served at Mount St. Mary’s College Doheny Campus, St. Bernard High School in Playa del Rey, Chaminade College Preparatory in West Hills and St. Bernardine Catholic Church in Woodland Hills. I've also done a lot of music ministry and have been singing in choirs and cantoring since I was 13 years old (I'm 42 now). In high school in the San Fernando Valley where I was born, raised and currently live, I was in theater, band & choir and was also deeply involved in the youth ministry at my church. I got my MA in Spiritual Psychology from University of Santa Monica in 2010 and love to study and practice spirituality in all its beautiful forms.
I may be a cradle Catholic but I connect with the Spirit everywhere. And I'm looking forward to working together to bring the Spirit to life at St. Monica this coming year!
