Holy, Engaged and Alive!

My faith is at the heart of me. I am not sure when those things happen -- when you find yourself at one with the one who made you -- when every moment of the day, every thought, every action is a prayer ... but there I find myself.

I love learning, so I spend time with writers young and old who challenge me, make me think, contemplate, reconcile and be better. I have a great love for social justice -- the kind that brings you into real solidarity and joy.

I believe that conversion is an ongoing thing -- I read, I pray, I celebrate sacraments, I serve, I make mistakes, I reconcile and that makes me more loving and able to be the Good News for others. I try to live my life so others might see a glimpse of the one who made them too.

Highlights of My Career

I served as Coordinator of Youth Ministry Services for Center for Ministry Development for the past six years, directing Young Neighbors in Action mission trips for high school youth. I continue as an author for Youth Ministry Access, Fashioning Faith, teach justice and service in a youth ministry studies course and have been a speaker at state and national conferences well as diocesan events. In the Diocese of Green Bay I was a director of faith formation and youth ministry at several parishes and began my career as a high school teacher. Most recently a career highlight is 24 Hour Food Fast for Catholic Relief Services I have co-authored for the past three years.

Something Most People Don't Know About Me

I can speak Farsi and love to read murder mysteries.
