I truly feel called to be here at Holyland Catholic School. It is an honor and
a privilege to share my two greatest passions with students: the gift of music and the gift of our Catholic
faith. I am especially passionate about giving students the skills, tools, and experiences they need in
order to be life-long learners and to have life-long relationships with Jesus that continue to grow.

I graduated in 2005 from Marian University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and a Theology
Minor as well. I have been involved in the Sabre-Show Singers, Community Theatre, local cover-bands,
4-H Arts Festivals, and community choirs. I have directed high school Choirs, church choirs, and
musicals. I have been a liturgical musician for 10 years, and I have been teaching piano and voice for 19


My husband, Jeff, and I were married in 2005 and we have been blessed with 4 amazing children: Josiah
(12), Ephraim (10), Gabriel (9), and Trinity (6). Our children all play musical instruments and play many
team sports as well, which keeps us busy and out of trouble!
