I am excited to begin another year of bringing music to a creative group of students at 

St. Damian! My husband Tom and I have been parishioners at St. Damian for 26 years. My 4 children have all attended St. Damian from K-8 grade. I believe that a child’s creativity is instrumental in his/her cognitive, social and emotional development. By developing musical skills and performing in public, students acquire poise, increased self-esteem and understanding that discipline and hard work brings rewards. It is a joy for me to see my student’s singing at mass and moving hearts and minds through their voices. 

“ To sing in mass, is to pray twice”....St. Augustine.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children, traveling, going to the theater and relaxing by the water.
