Experience Summary
Prior to arriving at Mary Help, I worked in several parishes where I would primarily serve teens through the Religious Education, Confirmation, and Youth Ministry Programs. These experiences have led me to see the importance of making our Catholic faith relevant and positive, both inside and outside the classroom.
 
Personal Message
The first time I began to truly make the Catholic faith the guiding force in my life was when I was a sophomore in high school. I know that this would not have been possible if it weren’t for faith-filled adults that walked with me every step of the way, showing me the beauty of living a Christ-centered life. Because of this, journeying with teens where they’re at and doing my best to witness a life of discipleship is of great importance to me, and I hope to allow Christ to use me as He used others in my own life.

Experience Summary
I have taught Theology, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra in Florida and Louisiana. I am happy to be teaching now in a state with four seasons. Many times, the most valuable lessons we learn in life happen outside of the classroom, so I like to encounter my students in their extra-curricular activities.

Personal Message
St. John Bosco always said, "Young people will do the right thing if they know the right thing." I am blessed to accompany your children on the path to holiness: doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, for the love of God.
