My husband, Rob, and I are members of Holy Rosary, we are very active in the parish and are constantly volunteering for one thing or another (maybe we just have a problem saying “No” to Our amazing Priest!). As well as working part time at Lumen Christi, I Coach Gymnastics at a non-competitive gym called The Rec Room. I have been coaching gymnastics for 20 years. I also work for the parish. Father McCarthy and I are the dynamic duo behind the altar flowers. He brings me lovely fresh flowers every week and I arrange them. I have been teaching for over 20 years, 12 of those at Lumen Christi! I believe that creating art takes skill, confidence and bravery. My goal is to help my students gain artistic skill so that they feel enough confidence to express themselves and brave enough to make mistakes and work through them.
It makes me sad when people tell me they “can’t draw a straight line.” I say…“Who needs a straight line anyway?”
