I am currently the Insurance and Claims Manager for Redbox Entertainment, Inc., but have worked in the insurance industry in various capacities for thirty-four years. I grew up in a small town near Akron, OH and graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in Business Management. I played CYO volleyball and basketball in fifth and sixth grade and was a cheerleader and ran track in middle school. I was a gymnast and ran track in high school, graduating with honors. Yes, I am very sports-oriented and love my Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks!

When did you start serving at St. James?
I became a parishioner at St. James in 2014 and began volunteering at Jubilation in 2015. I joined the PPC in 2020.

Why are you passionate about serving at St. James?
I believe in St. James mission “To Be Disciples of Christ and Make Disciples of Christ”. No matter where I have lived, I always found a parish to join and volunteered when I could. It’s always been a part of my life.
