My name is Theresa Jasko and I am currently the President of Leonie’s Longing. I studied Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Michigan and I currently work in the private sector. My previous jobs have included working in film as a Production Manager, doing constituent relations for a State Senator, helping manage the office of a web hosting company and being a cashier at a thrift store. I spent quite awhile discerning religious life and I entered a community for a time. Transitioning back to lay life was very difficult for me and I looked everywhere for resources and support. As I prayed and asked God to help me during this time, I came to realize that He was asking me to help others who were experiencing the same situation. Thus Leonie’s Longing was born. I pray that you find it helpful.
Social Media & Blog Content Coordinator
Reading the posts at Leonie’s Longing by others who had been in religious life made a great difference to me, and I knew immediately that I wanted to get involved. Initially, my mission was to look after the blog for a few weeks while the then-Blog Mistress was away, but it slowly morphed into a permanent role, and then a position on the Board. The title sounds pretty impressive, but my job is the same as ever: to help women (and men, too) who want to share their stories with others on the blog. If you have any ideas for blog posts, or questions about writing for Leonie’s Longing, I’d be very happy to hear from you at blogcontent[at]leonieslonging.org! (Please note that the old email address, the one that began with “blogmistress,” is no longer functioning!)
