About Me

Welcome to my life!  I look forward to sharing it with you in hopes that you, too, will share with others what God is doing in your life. Here are some basic facts about me...

Birthday: January 16

From: Born in Biloxi, MS and raised in Albuquerque, NM

Stage in Formation: I am in my fifth year of religious vows which means I have been with my religious community for what's going on eight years now. I was first a Candidate for one year, a Postulant for another, and then a Novice for two years. Now I am referred to as "Annually Professed" because I have not yet made my final vows (I'll be eligible for those in 2019). I professed my first vows on August 15th, 2013 and look forward to the continued journey in religious life.

Ministry: I lived and taught in sunny Southern California for four years.  I was blessed to be at Pomona Catholic All-Girls High School where I taught Spanish, Religion and Dance. Currently I am serving on our vocation team as the outreach minister. It involves a lot of travel and I'm loving it. I also get to help at our after-school program in western Pennsylvania which I now happily call home.

Interests/Hobbies: Other than the Holy Trinity, Mary, the Felician Sisters and Saint Francis, I love people, animals, and candy!  I also love Spanish, reading, riding my bike, walking, dancing, talking, listening, laughing, making new friends, traveling, watching movies, praying, and writing.

Other: At home, my generous mother is taking care of my crazy Husky, Maya, and my antisocial cat, Angel.  I have two lovely younger sisters, Johnele and Angelina – Johnele is 28 and has two beautiful children; Angelina is 12, proud to be in 7th grade and doted on by her bigger sisters regularly.

I am so grateful you are taking the time to be a part of this journey with me. May your every step be blessed by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
