Why I work in Youth Ministry: Well, because my husband showed me a job solicitation for a coordinator of youth minister at my previous parish, Holy Trinity in DC.  He told me I should apply because he knew how much I loved ministry and because it would be better to be paid volunteer.  More than that, God had been guiding me all along starting from my great experiences in high school years. From my 8 years in Southern Baptist elementary to all girl high school to college, travel and work overseas, these all expanded my vision of church - very much in the spirit of JP2.  I love to share those experiences with our teens and bring them and their parents to a fuller, richer life in Christ.

About Me: I have a wonderful supportive husband and three amazing kids - and, I'm a HUGE extrovert so let's talk when we meet!
