I am so excited to be part of the staff here at St. Valentine Parish, as the Pastoral Associate. I graduated in 2015 from Duquesne University, with a Masters in Theology with a focus on Pastoral Ministry. I have been a member of the parish for twenty-nine years and formerly served on the Pastoral Council. Currently, I serve as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist and Lector.
I have a B.A. in Communications from The Ohio State University and my certification in Elementary Education. I have taught elementary education for over fifteen years. I had the blessing of teaching not only in traditional academic settings, but also the for the deaf and hearing impaired, and in the Montessori method.
I am happily married for twenty-nine years to my husband Joseph. We have two sons, Andrew and Kyle. We are grandparents, which is wonderful! I like to read, garden, walk, and vacation on the beach.
