Greetings! My name is Jamie Ulrich and I am the LVC National Office’s new intern! I am working as the Social Media Coordinator and will be helping out with managing LVC’s social media platforms, coming up with some new ideas for marketing LVC, and updating our database. I started in mid-January and will be here until mid-April, doing lots of great work for an amazing organization!
I am doing my internship at LVC as a participant of the Lutheran College Washington Semester, which is a semester-long program comprised of students from various Lutheran colleges and universities from all over the country. My home school is Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania. I am a junior and am pursuing a dual major in Religion and Youth Ministry/Theology. At Thiel, I am involved in Thiel’s campus ministry through working on Chapel Staff and participating in Lutheran Student Movement. Additionally, I am a member of the Thiel Choir and Chamber Singers, the Thiel Players, Alpha Chi Honor Society, and several other organizations.
Following graduation from Thiel College, I intend to attend an ELCA seminary or divinity school to obtain my Master’s in Divinity degree. I am planning to pursue a career in campus ministry as a campus pastor. I think that non-congregational organizations like LVC play a huge role in modern ministry, so I’m excited to see this side of ministry through this internship!
I have had an absolutely incredible experience in D.C. so far. From my wonderful internship at LVC, my classes, field trips and adventures with LCWS, and many other experiences, I feel tremendously blessed to be able to live in our nation’s capital for an entire semester. Since moving here, I’ve attended worship at the National Cathedral, seen the monuments and memorials, toured the Capitol Building and the Supreme Court, eaten copious amounts of delicious food, participated in the Women’s March on Washington, and much, much more! I am thankful for the experiences I’ve had thus far and look forward to many more to come!
