About Me: My family and I have been blessed to be parishioners of Our Lady of Hope since the days in the Potomac Falls High School Auditorium. I was homeschooled through high school and was involved in youth group throughout high school. I attended three different colleges, graduating with a degree in Sports Science from California University of Pennsylvania in 2017. This was also the year I began my time as Assistant Youth Minister, and I have been blessed since I started. In addition to being involved in youth ministry, I also coach for local teams and schools. Our Lady of Hope is home to me, and I am grateful to be a part of the staff and parish family.

Why I love working at Our Lady of Hope: I don’t have enough room to write it all! A few things: I love our priests, the beauty of the church, the atmosphere, and the vibrancy of parish life. I love working in youth ministry because of the energy of the teens, the ability to interact with and get to know them, and the incredible feeling of being able to share my love for the Church with them and vice versa, and the spirit of the community. Also, working with a priest is awesome!
