My family and I have been part of the Ascension community since 2003 and since July 2014 I have had the privilege to serve our parish as the Director of Religious Education. Returning to work after being a stay-at-home mom for thirteen years has been an adjustment for our family, but so well worth it. I love my job! I am blessed to be working with a dedicated group of volunteer catechists, parents and students. I have a BA in Political Science from the University of California Santa Barbara and an MA in Catechesis from Santa Clara University. In the past, I created youth ministry programs, in both parish and school settings, in my home state of California and in New York City. Our Catholic Faith is rich with treasure and I enjoy helping our children, parents and catechists unearth and experience the riches God has so generously given to us.
