I was born in Warren, Ohio and raised in Naples, Florida. After beginning college at the University of Florida, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I hold a professional teaching license, and I am currently enrolled in a graduate program to obtain my Master of Arts in Theology. Prior to joining the staff at St. Pius as the Director of Formational Ministries, I was a high school English teacher at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School in Kernersville. Go Villains!
I met my husband, Rick, while living in Florida, and we now have four children together – Isaac, Joseph, Grace, and Eve. We also have a dog named Max and a cat named Leo. We enjoy spending time with family and friends, swimming, fishing, or watching a good movie.
I was Baptized and Confirmed in the Eastern Rite of the Catholic Church when I was an infant at Sts. Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church in Warren, Ohio. I made my First Holy Communion at St. William’s Roman Catholic Church in Naples, Florida, and have been a member of St. Pius the Tenth since moving to Greensboro in 2007. I have been involved in many aspects of community life at St. Pius, both through the parish and the school. I enjoy volunteering my time to help with fundraisers and events and I have served the parish for the past several years as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and as one of the editors of our parish newsletter, Echoes.
