Julieta was born in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico and at a young age moved to El Paso, TX with her family. She later moved to San Antonio, TX for her undergraduate studies and through her involvement in campus ministry and a liberal arts education discovered a passion for theology. Julieta began working as a campus minister for St. Mary’s University and journeyed with college students in their understanding of faith and spirituality. She coordinated campus liturgies and organized faith formation initiatives for young adults seeking to fulfill their sacraments in the Catholic Church. As a PhD student, Julieta is eager to study how spirituality plays a role in human behavior, religious practice, and societal engagement. Her research interests will focus on how theology and spirituality influence ethical decisions within medical practice.
