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.
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.
My husband, Christian, and I have 4 children – three boys (8, 3, and 1) and a 5 year old girl. I joined St. Anne’s in 2011 when we had just moved from Michigan with my oldest, who was 3 months at the time. Not knowing anyone living in Florida and being a former Catholic educator, I was so thrilled to find a group of faith-filled, supportive and fun-loving women. My life has been so enriched these last 8 years because of the ministry and the women and families involved. When I’m not running after the kids, I enjoy sewing, college football, and crafts.
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 have lived in Florida for 20 years and have been a member of Annunciation since moving from South Florida to Altamonte Springs in June 2018. My husband and I have 3 children, 4 year old twins and a 2 year old who all keep us busy with soccer and dance classes during the school year. Since moving to Altamonte St. Anne’s has given me the place to make friends, to belong to a community of families that have the same values and beliefs that we are teaching our children each day. I am primarily a stay at home mom but with support of my husband I am able to grow my real estate career as I had in South Florida, with the kids starting school soon it keeps me busy. In my free time, when I have it I enjoy time some me time, attending concerts and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to this coming year, to continue to build relationships, not only for me but for my children and meeting new families to the St Anne’s Ministry of Mom’s.
I’ve lived in Florida for 8 years and have been a member of Annunciation for the six years we’ve lived in Seminole County. I have four children from 13 years to 2 years old and along with my boys, we are active with the cub and boy scouts that are chartered with the parish. In my spare time I love to go for runs and find some quiet time to enjoy a good book. I first found out about St. Anne’s while on an Emmaus retreat (which I highly recommend) and I really enjoy the fellowship with Catholic women trying to live out this life of motherhood in the world we find ourselves.
Fund Raising Chair
Our family has been extremely blessed to be a part of the Annunciation Catholic Family. I joined the St. Anne’s Ministry to have a sense of community that we all long for. In addition to have other Mom’s to walk through the same faith journey to help strengthen each other especially through the hard times! The ministry has been such a blessing to me and the kids and I hope this year we can help it grow to have more Wonderful Mother’s!
My husband and I are blessed with four children (6, 3, 2, and 10 months). Currently, I am a stay at home mom and previous to that I worked in community/public/government relations arena.
Service 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.
Family First Chair
I love being part of St. Anne’s because it has made it easy for my family to meet so many new Catholic friends at our church! My husband and I have been blessed with three children, ages 10, 7, and 3. As the Family First Chair, I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to plan all types of play dates that can make both big kids and little ones happy. This makes moms happy! I am also excited to plan some special family events. My family keeps me busy, but when I can sneak in free time for me, I enjoy festivals, going to the theatre, visiting art museums, and listening to live music.
I have a seven year old and a five year old. I taught music in Seminole County Public Schools for ten years before I left to teach private piano lessons and stay home with my children. I love spending time with my family going to local theme parks and water parks. I’ve really enjoyed the sense of community St. Anne’s Ministry of Moms has brought us and how we, as moms, can grow in our faith together.
