Burning Hearts Disciples

Equipping, training, & supporting Catholics to live out Jesus’ call to “go and make disciples.” Creating a culture of intentional disciples.


15 years of parish ministry, a Master’s degree in Pastoral Studies, a background in teaching, and my vocation as a wife and mother have given me a passion for living a life guided by the Holy Spirit and grounded in the real world. My goal is to inspire Catholics around the country to discover that the our faith is more than just doctrine, dogma and theory; it is a lived, intentional relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. My husband Tony and I have 3 children and live in Oshkosh, WI, and I am the Executive Director of Burning Hearts Disciples – an apostolate in the Diocese of Green Bay that inspires and equips parishes to create a culture of intentional discipleship. I manage our blog and social media accounts there which focus on equipping, training, and supporting Catholics to live out the New Evangelization through the art of accompaniment.

What type of wine is your favorite?

Just about anything is good as long as it’s not too sweet. If I had to pick one, probably 14 Hands Chardonnay which is has the most buttery feel. It’s like Lue La Roe leggings for your mouth!

What is your favorite chocolate?

I’m so much more of a salty person than a sweets person (in both taste and personality!) – so I prefer a sea salt chocolate or chocolate covered turtles!

What is your favorite prayer and/or quote?

Oh man, I feel like this changes on a regular basis! Lately, I have been enamored with this quote from St. John Paul II in Redemptoris Missio (Mission of the Redeemer):

“A radical conversion in thinking is required in order to become missionary, and this holds true both for individuals and entire communities” (49).
