My husband, Steve, and I met, as undergraduates, at DePaul University and have been married since 1998. We have two children, Sarah (14) and Nate (13), plus a very active dog-Callie. We have lived in Arlington Heights for 13 years. I have a professional background of 12+ years in Hospitality Management with the Four Seasons Hotel Chain in Front Office Management, as well as, Training and Development.
After volunteering for 8+ years, I was hired at St. James Parish in Arlington Heights in 2016 and over the course of 3 years served in several roles including Open Doors Coordinator, Children’s Ministry Coordinator, and Hospitality & Engagement Manager.
I came to St. Raymond Parish in November 2019 as Engagement Director. I have enjoyed meeting many individuals and families within this faith community so far. It has been a true pleasure working in ministry alongside a parishioners and community members that are diverse, talented, and driven. I am excited to work with staff and lay leaders to develop opportunities for engagement within the Councils, Commissions, and ministries as they continue to lead the parish on mission with the Church. Through these meetings of evaluation and vision planning, the parish members will actively share their faith with other and develop relationships that will allow for cross collaboration within ministries and commissions. Development of leadership succession will be crucial component to build upon as the commissions develop.
I look forward to continuing to meet members of St. Raymond Parish as they share their time and talents in service to our community.
