I want people to say YES to the life that they were created for each and every day of their lives.

I am a graduate of Marquette University, receiving both a BA in both History and Theology before entering active duty as an United States Army officer where I served a tour active duty overseas, including a combat tour in Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War.

After 14 years, I resigned my commission in the Army Reserves, and then went on to run a nonprofit multisport racing company and foundation for elementary age youth while completing my studies for a MA in Theology from Catholic Distance University based in Arlington, Virginia. Simultaneously I supported my husband’s defense contracting business, spending ten years working as a government contractor as a Facility Security Officer.

Since my conversion to Roman Catholicism over thirty years ago, I have actively served in a variety of roles within religious education, Confirmation preparation, youth ministry, social justice ministry, RCIA, adult faith formation and spirituality, including 5 years as the Director of Adult Education and Spirituality at St John the Baptist Catholic Church in Madison, Alabama. I also have a Certification in Spiritual Mentorship that I received from the Apostles of Interior Life and the School of Faith under the auspices of Archbishop Joseph Naumann in the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas.

I have been passionate about sharing the love of Christ and assisting others in finding God’s plan for their lives through actively serving others as a spiritual mentor, serving as part of the Region VII Regional Service Team pool for the Cursillo Movement, organizing pilgrimages to the March for Life in Washington, DC and the World Meeting of Families, assisting vocations efforts in the Diocese of Birmingham and other evangelization efforts, including initiatives within my home diocese, the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama.
