I am a "Cradle Catholic", originally from New Orleans, and a product of 12 years of great Catholic schools. I have degrees in Education, Catechetics and Ministry with doctoral studies on Ecumenism and Catechetics in Rome. I have served as a catechetical leader in parishes and schools for over 30 years. My current ministry is the role of DRE for St. Ann parish in Colonial Heights, VA (near Richmond), and as a freelance consultant for innovations in parish leadership. I recently completed a term as the Mid-Atlantic Parish Catechetical Leader representative for the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL). In 2014, I had the privilege of representing NCCL at the International Catechetical Congress in Rome with Pope Francis. My publishing credits include articles for Today's Parish Minister and Catechetical Leader magazines as well as textbook materials for Wm. H. Sadlier and St. Mary's Press. I recently completed the design for Saint Leo University's new online Intro to Catechetics course. I am single, living in Richmond and sharing my home with my "rescue" dog, Mr. Bojangles (who passed his National Therapy Dog certification!). Together we share faith and fun at local retirement facilities.
