Location: North Aurora, Illinois, United States

I have been active in parish ministry and campus ministry programs for 40 years. I ascribe to the fundamentals of authentic leadership and strengths-based leadership, which have been integral to my professional career and my doctoral degree in educational leadership and management. My vocation has been firmly rooted in music ministry, where I value the gifts and talents of the volunteer community as essential, core components to vibrant parish and campus ministry programs. I am entering my 15th year as Director of Music and Liturgy at St. Elizabeth Seton Parish in Naperville, Illinois. I am incredibly fortunate to partner there with my very gifted and talented husband, Allen. My career history includes many memorable years at the University of Dayton in Campus Ministry, Saint Xavier University Campus Ministry in Chicago, and as Director of Campus Ministry for All Saints Catholic Academy, also in Naperville. While I am proud of my career and educational accomplishments, I am most grateful for our two adult children, Renee and Ryan, their spouses, three terrific grandchildren, and, not to exclude, Lacey, our Maltese poodle. I am proud to be associated with VLCFF and honored to accompany course participants in the learning process.
