Hello and Welcome!

 I am passionate about transforming complex biblical teachings into bite-size life applications.  These practical takeaways should be easy to understand and relatable, regardless of where you are in your walk with the Lord.


We worship at Wallenpaupack Church where our kids are also involved with youth and children’s programming. Prior to calling this our church home, I was raised Catholic (16 years of Catholic schooling, uniforms and all!) and was ordained as a deacon in the PC USA denomination a number of years ago. Although I was exposed to the Lord my whole life, it wasn’t until about 10 years ago when I started to learn that I could have a personal relationship with Him. This realization came about after God led me to a new church, a local MOPS group, and other women who were further along in their walk with Him than I was.


My undergrad degree is in Philosophy and World Religions, although I also studied English Literature for a period of time. After our last child was born I went back to school and earned a Masters in Public Administration with a focus on Nonprofit Management. I am back at it just one more time and am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Public Administration from the same institution. Where are my multitaskers at? I feel you!

For fun

When I’m not working on Living Simply With God or plugging away at my day job, you’ll find me:

  • Re-arranging rooms in our home…putting them back to how they were…and then re-arranging again…
  • Tackling DIY projects while my husband is out and about 😉
  • Carpooling the kids around to all the things
  • Being a foodie with my husband and trying out the newest restaurants
  • Grabbing a latte with friends at our local roastery
  • Buying too many things on Amazon so I can decide what I want to keep and then driving to UPS to do all the returns
  • Reading. Mysteries, historical/biblical fiction, and biblically-based nonfiction are among my favorite reads!
