About Me: I moved to Virginia for college and never left! Since moving to the area, I’ve found a wonderful group of friends and an amazing parish family. I’m active with out young adult group, Fiat, love Lindy Hop and all things vintage, and have the best niece ever.

Why I love working at Our Lady of Hope: I’ve been so blessed in my position here at Our Lady of Hope! Not only have I gotten to know so many of our parishioners through the office, but I also truly enjoy working with the various groups and ministries in spreading the joy of the Gospel in our community.
