Author, Speaker, Retreat Leader, Musician & Composer




Retreats are an opportunity to be touched by God and can be life-changing. I feel called to share experiences from my own life and help provide the opportunity for others to grow closer to the Lord. I have led worship, prayer groups and bible studies for over 25 years, so music, prayer and scripture are integral parts of my presentations.

I have given numerous talks at retreats, missions and conferences. I have now written and presented five different 3 hour retreats on various topics. Offering a 3 hour retreat makes the experience available to people who can’t get a way for a weekend retreat. It has proven very effective for many parishes. I can also lead a weekend retreat, a whole-day retreat, or give a 2 hour evening presentation. Whatever format fits the parish works for me!

My speaking engagements have included Lake Charles, LA, Houston, TX, St. Paul, MN, Sheridan, WY, Vacaville, CA, and Portland, OR.  I have led Women’s and Parish Retreats in Port Orange, Florida, Northern California (Chico, Davis, Yuba City, Lake Almanor, and Vacaville) and several cities in Oregon (Beaverton, Newberg, Florence, and numerous parishes in the Portland-metro area). Please go to my Events/Retreats page for upcoming retreats.
