I was born in Toronto, but I’ve lived here in Ottawa since 2000. I used to work in retail management in the high-end clothing and shoes industry until God became a priority. I gave a year as a missionary to youth in Canada through NET Ministries before becoming a sister of the Servants of the Cross, where I currently serve as Mother Superior.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology and another in Philosophy, as well as a Certificate in Trauma and Addiction Studies. I love learning about leadership from the greats like Patrick Lencioni, Craig Groeschel, and Carey Nieuwhof.
I’m currently the Coordinator of Pastoral Ministries at St. Mary’s Parish, where I work with a great team of parish leaders who support the ministries of the parish. I’m in charge of leadership formation of ministers and I coordinate the ministries’ efforts to work and collaborate with each other .
You should see my list! I have more than 75 older brothers and sisters (the saints) whose intercession I invoke every day.
Favourite travel destination
Assisi, Italy. Home of St. Francis, St. Claire, and the Franciscans.
Moana (I influenced one of my male leaders to watch it!)
I make pretty good pour-through coffee, camping-style at home.
On my birthday, don’t give me…
…stilettos or makeup.
