Professional Background

I have a dual certification in Middle Education and Art. I taught for 7 years before having my 5 children. While raising them, I served OLGC as our Youth Minister and came back to teaching once they were all in school. This is my 5th year at OLGC as the Middle School Religion Teacher.

Faith in Action

I try to live my faith in all aspects of my life, especially at school where I try to inspire students to a love of faith and prayer.

Favorite Teaching Moment

I love witnessing students have an "aha" moment of faith and understanding, like a little jolt from the Holy Spirit. I also love when students trust me with personal prayer intentions.

Favorite Food

I love all things food related and am a major foodie, but if I have to pick one guilty pleasure, it's chocolate chip cookies (semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips).

Favorite Activity Outside of School

Spending time with my family!

Fun Fact About Me

I am a life-long Wildcat! I attended OLGC 1-8 grade.
