Biography

Degrees:

Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Business Marketing from Meredith College

Professional Background

After graduating from Meredith College, I worked across the professional service industry spending a bulk of my career at Marsh and McLennan Companies, working in client development, sales and marketing. I have served on a local board and worked as an occasional business consultant since taking on my most prized title of 'Mom' to my 3 children.

I have been fortunate to be a part of the OLGC community for years and very active with The Wildcat Fund since its inception, serving as the chair in 2020-21. Throughout this time, I have felt so blessed to be a part of this community and am very excited to have the opportunity to join such a strong staff of dedicated people.

Faith in Action

I was very lucky to be a product of Catholic education myself and see the value and importance of faith in our lives. Being a part of this community as a parent has allowed for me to contribute to that experience for another generation and I look forward to further enriching my ties to this community and aiding in its growth.

Favorite Activity Outside of Work

Spending time with my family, cooking and entertaining.

Favorite Food

I love making the different Italian dishes that my mother and grandmother taught me. It is hard to pick just one!

Favorite Moment you had in your Vocation

Being able to relive all the precious moments of my faith through my children's experiences in school and through the sacraments they have prepared for and received.

Fun Fact About You

I attended mass celebrated by Pope John Paul II at The Vatican.
