Visitor Services Representative
Talia Westerby is currently the Director of Visitor Services at the Basilica. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Education and Music from Butler University and her Masters in Lay Ministry from Cardinal Stritch University. She loves to play Ultimate Frisbee, where she met her husband, Carl. Although she did not achieve her life-long goal of becoming the first female wide receiver of the Green Bay Packers, she still values the Hail Mary and spends her time trying to fall more passionately in love with Christ everyday.
When Talia first came to the Basilica back in 2010, she was struck by its beauty and could not deny the presence of the Holy Spirit in this place. She looks forward to greeting visitors from as far as across the seas or as near as down the street! Make sure to stop by the Visitor Center and Gift Shop when you come to the Basilica so Talia can hear all about your experience in this magnificent place.
