I have been teaching in Early Childhood for twenty five years. I have two grown children and two wonderful dogs. I am a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. When I am not working I enjoy my wonderful family, friends and travel.

As Development Director, I love to partner with OLG School parents, alumni, the OLG Parish community, and everyone else who understands the importance of a well rounded spiritual and academic education in today’s world, Together we can support our mission and help make a difference in the world around us by investing in our community’s children’s education and formation.
Having attended Catholic school myself, I deeply understand and value the key emphasis of Catholic education on educating the whole child. This means educating children in a safe and spiritual environment with a focus not only on strong academic achievement, but also on Gospel values and ethics, developing service and leadership by embracing the differences of others, and serving those in need.
My road to OLG has not been a straight one. I studied Hotel Business Management and obtained a specialization in Human Resources from Cornell University. My 20 year hospitality career allowed me to work in many different cities in the US as well as other countries and, this way, experience different cultures, work styles and create amazing memories. After working in every area of hotel operations in a variety of locations, I transferred fully to Human Resources, joining Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. My goal was helping employees succeed in the industry, learn, develop and reach their career (as well as life) goals. While I was never able to profess a specific faith in the workplace, I always sought to instill in employees the Christian values of integrity, compassion, gratitude, forgiveness and love for one another. But even though my career in hospitality was exciting and incredibly rewarding, my heart always longed to work in a role where I could not only live my faith fully everyday, but where I could also contribute -somehow- to a ministry of the Catholic Church. And now I can!
I am an avid reader (everything from fiction, to non-fiction, to reference books) and I am currently studying Philosophy. I love traveling with my family and going for walks every time I can. I also practice boxing and archery.
I feel so blessed to being part of OLG and I look forward to connecting with everyone in the community and helping in any way I can!

Being a part of the inner-workings at OLG and getting to know your children first hand has been incredibly rewarding. I get to play, be inspired by boundless creativity and energy, practice patience, and be reminded of mindfulness, humility, and forgiveness. I am blessed to share a role in your child’s joyful lives. My daughter is a proud graduate of 2019.
