I had the pleasure of interviewing Martha Richardson, a flight nurse from Houston, TX who is the cousin of the well-known priest Fr. David Michael Moses. He has a fantastic Instagram account where he posts reels and posts on catechetical topics in entertaining and engaging ways. I am a fan! Martha and I had a great conversation about her role in supporting her cousin’s online efforts and more. Enjoy!

Martha’s Bio:

My name is Martha Richardson, I’m a 31 yr old devout Catholic, who loves spending time with family and friends. I’ve been a nurse for 8 yrs and recently started my journey as a flight nurse! It’s been a dream come true. I love to travel and am currently working on hiking all of the National Parks. I just got back from Big Bend, and it’s extremely underrated. Glacier and Yosemite have been my favorites so far. I’ve loved the past, enjoying the present, and looking forward to what God has for me in the future!
