Hello! I have been blessed to work in Youth Ministry for almost 5 years and am one of the newer additions to the Ministry Staff starting my position here at All Saints in August of 2017. I am blessed to work with the Senior High Youth Life and Chosen 10 Confirmation Preparation. Feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions regarding any of these programs.
I am from Lake City, a little town in Norther Lower Michigan. My first experience with a Catholic school was when I chose to attend a Catholic college, Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I majored in Communication and minored in Theology. There I was able to fall in love God in a more personal way. While I was at Aquinas, I studied abroad in Rome, Italy and my faith become more solidified. I graduated from Aquinas in the fall of 2012. From there I traveled to West St. Paul to serve as a missionary with NET Ministries in 2013-2014. I love the sharing my faith and with the young church and wanted to continue working for the church in anyway I could. After NET, I started applying for Youth Ministry positions and ended up in a multi-parish as the Area Coordinator of Youth Ministry 6th-12th grades. I loved working in ministry, but it was time to work for one parish instead of four. All Saints was one of the very few parishes that I remember coming to when I was with NET and I am so blessed to work at All Saints.
I have lived in three different states (Michigan, Iowa, and Minnesota). I have also traveled to six different countries and most of the east coast of the United States. Some of my non-ministry hobbies include: traveling, spending time with my family, reading, exploring the cities, visiting coffee shops.
