Meet our Leadership Team:
My husband and I have a set of seven year old twins, a five year old, and a two year old. In my previous life, I was an elementary school teacher, but began staying home full time after the twins were born. In my free time I enjoy almost any type of group fitness class, reading – especially memoirs, and being by the water with my family. I really love the St. Anne’s group because I know it can be isolating as a full time stay-at-home-mom; and this group gives me an outlet to meet other young families that value having a home centered around Christ.
Secretary and Outreach Chair
My husband Joe and I have a sweet baby rapidly approaching his first birthday. We hope to be blessed with more children in the future, but this one keeps us pretty busy. We were both raised Catholic, and we just joined Annunciation recently after moving to Altamonte. I used to work full time as an illustrator doing theme park concept design, but now I stay home and pick up freelance work on the side. For fun I love to paint, read books from the library, try new recipes, and my husband and I love to travel. My favorite place we went to was Japan. It was my first time out of the country and was an awesome culture shock. I’m excited to be a part of St. Anne’s Ministry so that my family can build close friendships with people who share our values. It’s important to Joe and I to have our children grow up with God at the center of our lives.
I am a homeschooling Mom of two and married to my best friend. Born and raised in Florida, I worked my way into Business Management and that is where I learned to juggle the chaotic calling of motherhood. When I am not wrangling my 5 and 1 year old I am usually reading, working out, or catching up on Netflix shows with my husband. I really love the St. Anne’s group for its inclusive & welcoming atmosphere. We are all a bunch of mothers just looking for fellowship, support, and good laughs.
Life Chair and Fundraising Chair
I was born and raised in Florida, and was baptized here many, many years ago. I finished my sacraments at Divine Mercy in Brevard county. My amazing husband and I recently moved back to Seminole county. We have a beautiful daughter that will be two years old in May. I was a manager at a hotel for about 15 years, but now I am a stay at home mom and loving the experience. I am blessed to be a part of St.Anne’s ministry because there are wonderful moms that I can learn and grow from. In my free time, I love running, going to the beach, and visiting new places and restaurants.
Treasurer and Outreach Chair
My wonderful husband and I have been married for 8 years and have two sweet little boys ages four and one. I was a registered nurse before my first son was born and now officially have the best job in the world…Mom. I was drawn to St. Anne’s out of my desire to grow in my faith and to meet fellow moms that share in this. As a stay at home mom and wife I wanted to make sure God was center stage in my life and ensure that my children have a close relationship with God at an early age. I was so excited after the first Pray and Play meeting I went to. It was exactly what I was needing in my life…some time to spend with God praying the rosary with all of these wonderful moms while our children could be right there with us watching us join together in prayer while they all played together. St. Anne’s Ministry has really enriched my life.
To help with the transition from working full-time to stay-at-home-mom, I knew I had to find my tribe, and I found it in this ministry. This community has given me a lot of confidence as I became a new mom last year to my son, Peter. My husband, Nick, and I met online and have kept our faith as the cornerstone of our relationship. What I love about this ministry is that not only do we support each other in being great moms, we also support each other in being great wives as well. Some fun facts: I’m coffee-obsessed, I enjoy reading historical fiction, and I love being outside! I look forward to meeting new mommas and learning how to connect in different ways during this year of change.
