I’m Looking Forward to Working At OLMC Because: I get to meet such a wonderfully talented and diverse group of people, willing to experience the joy and power of one of God’s most awesome gifts, music.
Teaching Philosophy: Music is the vessel in which we pray, learn, and grow. As St. Augustine said, “those who sing, pray twice.”
Fun Fact: I started playing the piano at four years old.
When I’m Not in the Church , You’ll Most Likely Find Me: Shopping!
Ask Me About: My cat Portia!
Personal Motto: “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”- Victor Hugo
