Senior Campus Minister
Ashley D'Emo was born in Reno, Nevada. An only child, she and her parents moved to Oviedo, Florida in 1997. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2008 with a Bachelor's in History and in 2010 with a Master's in History.
While a student at UF she found a home at St. A's, where she came back to the Catholic Church after many years away and became very involved in the student programs. She thought she was going to go elsewhere to pursue a Ph.D. in History after she completed her Master's degree, but the Lord had other (better!) plans for her, so she remained in Gainesville after graduate school to work on retreats and alumni outreach for St. Augustine's from 2010-2013. She began as a campus minister in Fall 2013, became senior campus minister in Fall 2014, and is excited to see what the Lord has in store for the Catholic Gators!
