Samantha Povlock is the Founder, CEO, and Editor in Chief of FemCatholic. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame with degrees in business and theology, she started her career in Chicago working in consulting and project management. She currently lives in Greater Philadelphia with her husband, Matt, and three kids.
Shannon Ochoa is the co-founder of Eden Invitation, a movement celebrating personal integration and promoting solidarity beyond the LGBT+ paradigm through small groups, retreats, and online resources on sexual identity and the Christian life. Her own journey took her from confused Catholic to dedicated disciple. Shannon has always liked living in the tension, studying Social Welfare and Gender & Women’s Studies at a state school and later working in campus ministry for The Evangelical Catholic & Brew City Catholic. Ultimately, Shannon’s first love is Christ and His Church. We are inspired by her vulnerability and courage, and are so excited to host her at the FemCatholic Conference to share her Witness talk.
