Biography

Degrees: lB.S. Communications and Business from James Madison University; M.S. Educational Leadership and Policy Study from University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Professional Background: I spent a decade in hotel industry, as a Sales and Business Development Executive, and as a Corporate Trainer. From there, I came to OLGC to work in the Development Office and have loved every minute of it.

How I put my Faith in Action: As a child of OLGC, I took for granted the kindness and gentility of our community. Now, as a member of staff, I thank God every day to be able to witness the beautiful acts of his mercy and love played out in our school and parish. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to serve this community and be a part of the wonderful traditions of faith and fellowship.

Favorite Activity Outside of Work: Spending time with my husband, our family, and our three dogs. We try to have new adventures every weekend, but most of our time is focused on our home and garden.

Favorite Food: Tacos make me happy.

Favorite Moment you had in your Vocation: Seeing the Mary Garden come to fruition. What a beautiful place for every member of our community to pray and find peace! It is so inspiring to see how often people stop to take a moment out of their busy lives to find solace in the garden. I am humbled to have been a part of making it happen.

Fun Fact About You: As a child, I had a pet duck named Pookie, who followed me everywhere and loved to untie my shoes!

Favorite Quote: “Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing.” - St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Favorite Saint: St. Thérèse of Lisieux
