Youth Ministry Director, St. John Neumann in Canton
I’ve been working as a youth minister for 5 years. Prior to that, I studied at Madonna University where I double majored in Pastoral Ministry and Communication Studies. I am currently continuing my studies at Sacred Heart Major Seminary. I’m the youngest of six kids and I have lots of nieces and nephews who I love dearly! My desire in life is to know Jesus better and help others understand that he is the answer to every question and the solution to our longing for happiness.
