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 third year of religious vows which means I have been with my religious community for what's going on six years now. I was first a Candidate for one year, then a Postulant for another year, and a Novice for two years. Now I am referred to as "Temporary Professed" because I have not yet made my final vows (that happens in at least three more years). I professed my first vows on August 15th, 2013 and look forward to the continued journey in this stage of religious life.

Ministry: I am currently living and teaching in sunny Southern California.  I am blessed to be at Pomona Catholic All-Girls High School where I teach Spanish, Religion and Dance.

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 25, married and has two beautiful babies; Angelina is 10, proud to be in  5th grade and thinking about joining the Felicians with me someday. :)

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.
