I grew up in Monroe, Michigan, in the heart of the automotive industry. I attended St. Mary Catholic School and ahve the fondest memories of my childhood. Following my father's career at Ford Motor Company, my family moved outside the Chicago area where I attended high school- introducing me to my love of performance and music.
This love of performance brough me to travil in the Internationally acclaimed performance group Up With People and immerse myself in service, performance and cultural diversity.
After my performance days, I attended the University of Tennessee-Knoxville where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Judaic Studies.
I find myself managing both Church of the Assumption and St. Pius X Catholic Church and Classical Academy after more than 14 years in Business Management, Sales and Marketing in the Non-profit and For-profit worlds. It was only after the birth of my third child that I wanted something more fulfilling, and was blessed to have worked at the Diocese of Nashville Chancery, alongside Fr. Jerry Strange.
When Father Jerry was assigned to Church of the Assumption and St. Pius X Church and School in 2014, I was more than excited to join him in the management of both locations. I truly feel this is where God wanted me to be.
I am married to my wonderful husband Craig, and we are blessed with two beautiful and energetic daughters, McKenna and Emmerson as well as our car-loving son, Canon. We are members of St. Ann Catholic Church. We are very actively involved in our Parish, as well as the Diocesan Ministry for Engaged Couples. We are big supporters and members of Autism Tennessee, a charity very near to our hearts. When I am not working, you will find me at some sports field cheering on my little ones, working in my yard, and trying to live life to the fullest playing with my children, attending festivals, socializing with friends and trying out the latest addition to the Nashville restaurant scene.
I am truly blessed to be part of the Church of the Assumption Community, and thank God every day that he is present in all aspects of my life.
