Loretto Volunteer walks in Jossy Eyre’s footsteps at Women’s Bean Project

Posted on November 6, 2020, by Annie Rosenkranz

I love the idea that as a single individual I can help make an impact
in the lives of others, especially through an empowering non-profit like WBP.

Madeline Beulieau, Loretto Volunteer

Madeline Beulieau, pictured at left, is the first Loretto Volunteer serving at Women’s Bean Project (WBP). Madeline grew up in Vestal, N.Y., and attended Canisius College to play collegiate level soccer, while pursuing a degree in biology and a minor in Spanish. She was excited to move to a new part of the country for the first time and be a part of the Loretto Community and Loretto Volunteer house in Denver.

Madeline is approaching this year with openness and excitement, anticipating what she can offer and what she will gain in her service year.

Madeline was drawn to serve with WBP because of her shared commitment to building up women, particularly through creating health-centered products for sale in their communities. Madeline is a positive individual who, alongside her LoVo experience, is applying to medical schools, hoping to become a doctor.

Madeline hopes to contribute her energy, enthusiasm and compassion to the women of WBP. And she hopes to gain experiences that will inform her own growth both as an individual and as a future healthcare provider. Madeline is inspired to support women in their journeys toward new paths and new opportunities. She believes that lifting up women, particularly those who have experienced homelessness and incarceration, provides a means to work toward justice within unjust systems.
