Director of Product Development
I joined UW Sports Ministry during a period of time when I was volunteering at church and another non-profit. I was at a crossroads trying to make the right decision. I had worked for 35 years at a career that afforded myself and my daughter a blessed life but something was tugging at me to accept the position and leave the craziness behind. I know now that it was the Holy Spirit whispering in my ear to take the leap of faith and I am so happy that I did.

Why did you decide to join staff?
I joined UW during a time I was at a crossroads in my career. I knew I was not enjoying Corporate America and was praying for something that was more personally satisfying.
What is a favorite ministry moment?
My favorite ministry moment is when we are all together and spend time in our beautiful Prayer Room. My second favorite time is having lunch together and always finding something to laugh about.
What is the one area of the world that you would most like to visit?
I would like to spend time in Italy going to my families places of birth. I was brought up in an Italian home speaking Italian from an early age. My passion is to be there not as a tourist but to blend in with the community.
What is your favorite sports team?
My favorite sports team is the New York Yankees.
What do you do for fun?
My time for fun comes with my daughter and grandchildren. Being around them makes me really happy.
