When both your parents are foreign language teachers, it’s not too hard to catch the travel bug.

When Sr. Karen Schneider decided to join religious life, she thought she was giving up her dream of becoming a doctor ...Who knew that a religious sister could also be a physician?
When Sr. Karen told her mother that she was going to medical school, even her mother asked, “Oh, so you are leaving the nuns?” While in medical school, an experience in the jungle of Guyana, South America, completely changed Sr. Karen’s career path in medicine. Since that initial experience, over twenty years ago, she has taken part in at least one international, medical missions trip every year.
