PASTORAL ASSOCIATE (SC) AND SENIOR MINISTRY (CLUSTER)
I was born and raised in Oconomowoc Wisconsin, a graduate of Oconomowoc Senior High School, 1984. I attended college at the University of Wisconsin Platteville, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Vocal Performance in 1991. I have working at the Church of Saint Catherine of Alexandria in Mapleton for the past 10 years as Director of Christian Formation and currently serve as the Pastoral Associate and coordinator of Senior Citizen Ministry there and at St. Joan of Arc in Nashotah. Before that, I lived in Madison for 14 years, serving as Director of Liturgy and Music for the Church of Saint Peter, overseeing all liturgical functions and directing 7 different choirs. I have worked in a fulltime capacity for the past 34 years in several churches in Wisconsin.
I am a Co-founder of the Musical Group “Enter the Season With Song” which began 25 years ago in Madison. The group has produced 3 CD’s – 2 Christmas and 1 Christian Contemporary and, through their concerts, have generated over $120,000 – all given to various charities over the years. I feel very blest to be a catalyst in touching so many different lives in so many different ways! I love St. Catherine’s and St. Joan’s. It is an honor to be of service to the community and the parishioners.
