About me

Industry Religion
Occupation Spirituality/Healing Arts Program Director of the Franciscan Place at St. Joseph Family Center
Location Spokane, Washington, United States
Introduction Born and raised in Southern Oregon, I grew up in a large,close family. I love nature and doing many activities outdoors. I am a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. I have been in the Community for over 30 years and have taught elementary school in Spokane, WA, in Portland and in Beaverton, OR. Currently I live and minister in Oregon. In my ministry as a vocation director I travel a great deal from the west coast to the east coast for vocation activities. I started this Blog so that I could share with others about my life as a Catholic Sister and as a Franciscan. Sometimes I might share inspirations that have come my way, and sometimes I will share more about St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi whose charism is very much a part of my life.
