I grew up in Defiance, OH and completed my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, with a concentration in Athletic Training.  Since entering the Sisters of Notre Dame in 2004, I was called to complete a Master of Theology degree and certification in the Art of Spiritual Direction. I graduated with a Master of Theology degree from Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio and have completed my certification in the Art of Spiritual Direction from Loyola Marymount University and the Loyola Institute of Spirituality in Orange, California.

As a Sister of Notre Dame, I have served in a variety of ministries, including as a hospital chaplain, campus minister at high school and university levels, theology teacher, and strength and conditioning coach. In my current role of Vocation Director, I enjoy leading retreats, guiding young adults with spiritual mentorship, and walking with others in their joys and struggles of the faith journey.

One of the scripture quotes that I live by is: Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
