The Foundation Team
Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo
Though this is a job with great responsibility, my time outside of the office is enjoyed with my husband, four children and two pugs! As a mother of an autistic son, I find great joy caring for him and ensuring his sensory diet is met through various activities including lots of pool time!
Special Events Coordinator
When I am not planning events, I enjoy spending time with my two kids, Luca and Sofia as well as my husband David. Most of the home life consists of being in a hockey rink, but when we can get away, we love traveling to Florida and enjoying the warm weather and beaches.
When I’m not at work I’m usually teaching or practicing yoga, taking my adventure cats on a hike, or at home making bread – pickle bread is my favorite!
I have been a Varsity Cheerleading coach for 7 years at Depew High School and a coach for 8 years at Daemen College. During my free time I enjoy playing Bingo.
Advancement Campaign Specialist
I have a deep passion for theatre and have worked at several theaters in Buffalo in a variety of roles such as literary director, dramaturg, and front of the house representative. Every year I try to get to NYC at least once to see the latest shows

When I am not busy working, I enjoy spending time with my 19-year-old cat, hiking in the woods, journaling, kayaking, and practicing yoga/meditation. I love all animals and choose to live a very rewarding vegan lifestyle.
