About Me

In 2016, I earned my favorite job title yet, “mom”. I come from a big, blended family and really cherish the memories we’ve made! Before joining the Workmatters team, I worked in college athletics for nine years, learning about marketing, communications and development at universities across Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas. I am so excited to see how God uses me in this role to help advance the Workmatters mission.


I grew up in a Catholic household in the northeast, not really knowing how to have a relationship with the Lord or even that I could. In college, He used my circumstances to show me His unconditional love and I’ve been a believer ever since. I recently celebrated with believer’s baptism in June of 2021.


Cooking, going to the pool with my girls, hikes with my dogs, relaxing in our hammocks on our balcony.

Best Advice

There is no purposeless season in the life of a believer because God is sovereign over all. There is nothing that comes into your life that has not been sifted through the hands of God.
