My Story


My life is more than a compilation of activities, endeavors, and events. My life has happened under the surface of such things, in the secret of my heart. But that's another story. Here's a bit of my resume, the who, what, where, when, and how, in case you're curious. 

I graduated with a B.S. in Education from Kent State University, Kent, Ohio, and earned a Master of Theological Studies degree with a major in pastoral care from the University of Dallas. For two decades, I taught theology, and was a retreat leader and spiritual director for both students and faculty at Jesuit College Preparatory School, in Dallas. Over time, more than 2,000 high school students learned about Scripture, prayer, and the art of Christian living in my classes. Based on what the students taught me as well as on my years of volunteer work in elementary religion classrooms, I developed and taught a course in faith formation for catechism teachers and university students through the Institute of Religious and Pastoral Studies Program, University of Dallas.

I currently minister as a chaplain in Georgetown, Texas, receiving far more from those I serve than I'm able to give. I love motivational speaking, especially talking to groups about all matters spiritual. My devotions are published in Pearls of Promise, an anthology of devotionals (2013). My articles, talks, and poetry have appeared in various periodicals, including Conversations among Jesuit Secondary Schools, a quarterly once circulated in educational communities worldwide.

My husband and I feel incredibly blessed to live close to our terrific family, all residing in Texas. We enjoy hiking and contemplating God's amazing creativity in nature.
