Sister Trish Doan is a Sister of St. Joseph of Orange, who is completing her master’s degree in theology. She is an engineer, a restaurateur, an immigration professional—and a former refugee who escaped from Vietnam as an unaccompanied minor. Her vocation journey is matched by her family’s miraculous decade-long separation, and eventual reunion. Today Sister Trish speaks with us about her years-long journey from Vietnam to the US and how she adjusted to the culture of her new home country.
