About

I love my Jesus, and worship is the place where my heart comes alive.  My heart's desire is to raise up worship leaders for the Kingdom by providing an authentically Catholic resource for them to grow in their skills of leading corporate worship with music and to cultivate authentic relationships with our King.

"Be who God created you to be and you will set the world on fire"

My Story

I grew up in a small town in eastern Pennsylvania with a passionately Catholic family, and my earliest memory of my relationship with Jesus was on the kindergarten playground - hasn't stopped since! At the age of 14, I discovered praise and worship, and picked up my first guitar.  My life has never been the same. My degrees are in Theology and Catechetics from Franciscan University of Steubenville and I now reside in the desert of Phoenix, AZ, serving in ministry full-time as the Youth Minister at St. Theresa Parish.  Founder of the ministry The Father's Heart and Co-founder of Don't Shove The Dove Catholic Podcast (available on Spotify). For the past decade, I have had the opportunity to travel internationally as a speaker and worship leader for conferences, retreats, and ministry events for all ages and I LOVE it!
