Why would you like to participate in this forum?
I look forward to the exchange of ideas.

I am the Director of Employment Services & Benefits for the Diocese of Knoxville, TN, responsible for starting up the function. In addition to traditional human resources and benefits matters, I coordinate immigration-related matters for foreign priests and sisters serving in the diocese and for our foreign seminarians. I also coordinate the diocese's Safe Environment program. I have been here for almost eight years.

Prior to this, I worked as a human resources consultant. I have also worked in the high-tech industry, nonprofit sector and government.

I have a bachelor's degree in English and French from Indiana University, a master's degree in management from Tusculum College and senior certification in human resources from the Human Resources Certification Insititute, affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Resource Management. I am a trained mediator and a member of the National Association of Church Personnel Administrators.

I am married with two grown children and one grandchild. I belong to St. Albert the Great parish in Knoxville, where I am on the Finance Council.  I am thankful to my pastor for tapping my talents to serve the parish years ago and helped me see how I could use my professional skills to serve the church.
