After attempting bull riding, while serving as the Director of Youth Ministry at St. Andrew the Apostle, I awakened to a deeper love for serving teens and a new passion for helping others in youth ministry. Growing up in a military family, I changed addresses often, teaching me to be a seeker of God’s constant presence, a welcoming friend, and a person who celebrates unexpected blessings. After over a decade in full-time ministry, I still wholeheartedly love Jesus and his Church but feel a special invitation to live it out differently.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation! I’d love to help others experience the mercy of God in their daily lives.
My personal motto is “work hard, play hard, and pray harder.”
