Senior Telecommunications major and Religion minor from Boca Raton, FL
Hello and welcome to the Restless Heart Communications family! (Also known as #RHCfam)
I'm a fourth year Telecommunications Major and Religion Minor. When I first came to UF, I didn't want to be "too" involved with the Catholic Gators. Now, I pretty much live at the student center. God had a funny way of changing my plans but looking back now, I wouldn't want it any other way. I found a family in the people at Catholic Gators and a passion for using my talents in the media for the Church. I've never had so much fun in my life than I've had in the past couple of years traveling and reporting for God. Use your gifts for Him! I promise, you won't regret it!

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6) Well, my path has lead straight to Catholic Gators and I couldn't be more blessed! As soon as I joined Catholic Gators, I felt completely at home and so loved and I want to be able to spread that love and joy with everyone I meet! I am a second-year Advertising major and the Restless Heart Communications Advertising Director! I can't wait for what's in store this year and all the amazing things God is going to do through Catholic Gators! Some fun facts about me: I am from Houston, Texas, I love monkey, dogs, tennis, photography and sunsets! Feel free to say hi if you see me around! God bless :)

Sophomore English major and Theatre minor
Hey guys! My name is Kayla and I am a sophomore English major, Theatre minor and the Restless Heart Communications Print Coordinator. It is probably evident, but I love reading and writing as well as singing, playing guitar, watching Parks and Rec, cooking, travelling, and Catholic Gators! Catholic Gators has provided me a great home to meet wonderful friends and worship God at the same time. I am extremely blessed to have the role of a student officer this year. I cannot wait to see what this year holds for me and the rest of the Catholic Gator community!
Senior Food Science and Nutrition major from Orlando, FL
Hey there! For those of you that don’t know me, I’m David Barreto and am serving as the video director for this upcoming year. I AM STOKED. Ever since being enveloped into the Catholic Gator community, I’ve experienced such an authentic love, joy, and fellowship, from everyone I’ve come in contact with here! It was intimidating at first, but after getting to know some common faces, I was invited so warmly into the different events around the church like Newman and the Alpha retreat. I’ve always been a visual learner, which I think ties into why I love making videos and taking pictures so much. The goal for me this year is to try and capture the beauty, emotion, and authenticity that we emit as Catholic Gators, as well as the beauty of the liturgy of our Church, because I want everyone in Gainesville to experience it!
Practically, I am a senior studying Food Science and Nutrition, and some of my other favorite hobbies include breaking out dance moves from Lifeteen summer camp, going to mass, meeting new people, going on adventures, and making the healthiest and eye-pleasing dishes in the kitchen. You’ve heard some of my story, now I want to hear yours. Come talk to me!
Junior Public Relations major from Venice, FL
Hey there, friends! My name is Clare (a.k.a. Clare Bear), and I'm so excited to serve as Social Media and Web Coordinator for RHC this year! Having this position gives me the opportunity to give back to the community that has given me so much these past few years. Thanks to Catholic Gators, I have grown in my faith and have met some of the greatest friends I could ever imagine having!
If you see me around St. A's or Hurley, say hi! I love meeting new friends. When not around Catholic Gators, you can catch me at the gym (where I work; go, RecSports!) or at a show because I love love love music.
(I like fun puns and lame jokes.)
