My mother moved our family to San Antonio after his death for better opportunities. She still lives in San Antonio, and we are blessed that she attends St. Michael’s with us.

I have an older sister, brother-in-law and nephew. I have been married to Father Frank for 7 years. I have 2 children by birth, 4 by marriage and countless others through relationships I have formed with them. I am blessed to have 14 grandchildren. And 1 Godson I was given as a gift from the Lord.  I was baptized Roman Catholic as a toddler at St. Cecilia’s in San Antonio.  

I grew up in San Antonio and attended Northside Independent School District schools, graduating from John Jay High School in 1990. I was active in ROTC in High School and knew from a young age that I wanted to pursue nursing as my career path.  Graduating with my Certified Nurse’s Aide certification. Before I could continue directly out of High School life happened and I stayed as a CNA for over 20 years. When I met my husband, he asked me what your passion and goal in life is, and he saw that I was able to pursue my life’s dream. I was able to attend North American University and obtain my Licensed Vocational Nurses license on my first attempt. I would like to continue my nursing education to further my abilities to help those that cannot help themselves.

My passion is my children. I love to serve people that cannot help themselves. I pray that one day St. Michael’s will be able to sponsor a food pantry to help those less fortunate. I enjoy watch crime investigation television shows and taking care of my family.
