Advisors Directory

Meet our youth ministry advisors! 

Our team of advisors aid the middle and high school youth throughout the year planning meetings, sharing insight and advice, chaperoning events, and more. Thanks to our advisors we are able to effectively serve the youth and the parish through innovative programs and fulfilling service projects. 

Cassie Dalrymple

My name is Cassie and I teach 4th and 5th grade at Franklin Elementary, receiving my bachelor’s from the University of Nebraska Omaha.  I attended Central High School and have been involved in youth group ever since!  I have served as a youth group advisor for the past 14 years.  I appreciate the youth ministry program at St. Roberts because it has allowed me to stay involved in the parish and the youth group has always been another family to me.  I truly enjoy watching the youth of this parish bring so much joy to those they serve through this ministry!

Grace Gustafson

Hi, my name is Grace Gustafson and have been involved in youth group since my sophomore year of high school. I graduated from Marian High School in 2017 and am currently going to the University of Nebraska-Omaha studying Business marketing and minoring in Non-Profit Management. I am so thankful to this youth group for always pushing me to be the best version of myself and have gained so many friends that I will cherish for years to come. 

Lauren Mohatt

Hi, my name is Lauren and I'm a graduate of Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri with my degree in Nonprofit Leadership. I currently work at Big Brothers Big Sisters as their Events Manager, while also taking on the role of Volleyball Commissioner for St. Roberts. I began my journey with youth ministry when I was in sixth grade with VBS, participated in high school while attending Duchesne, and have continued with this program for over 10 years now! I love youth ministry because it has opened so many doors to life-long friendships, unforgettable experiences, and countless leadership opportunities to grow and truly find myself.

Dan Podjenski

My name is Danny Podjenski and have been an active part of the youth group since 2004. I attended Creighton Prep and the University of Nebraska Omaha. I currently work as a science teacher at Omaha South High School. Some of my most cherished memories from high school were at St. Roberts Youth Group and I hope to contribute to the youth group legacy. I am so excited to give other young adults the same wonderful opportunities with growing their relationship closer to God, giving back to the parish community, and developing into the next great parishioners. 

Ben Preston

My name is Ben and I’ve been in youth group since 2007.  I graduated from Creighton Prep in 2011 and then attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln studying business and marketing. I currently live and work in New York, but assist in the planning of leadership development for the youth and help plan mission trip programming. I partake in various trips like NCYC and our mission trips to the reservation every summer and winter. I’ve stayed active in the youth group even after graduating high school because this group showed me how to make a meaningful difference in my community. I enjoy helping the youth of our parish find that passion for serving others. 

Abby Pritchard

I'm Abby and I have been involved with youth ministry for 7 years. I attended Marian High School and now I am a student at University of Nebraska at Omaha studying to be an art teacher.
