Born into a large Italian family in North Jersey, I am a true “jersey girl” at heart. From the time I was 5 years old I had the unique opportunity to travel the world as a competitive Irish step dancer. This allowed me to experience a multitude of cultures, interact with people from all walks of life, and see parts of the world that looked nothing like my little section of New Jersey.
The downside of this performing lifestyle was just that; it was a performance, always. This led to an emptiness I tried to fill with various accolades. In high school I transferred to a private school where I felt I could be more known and gain more acceptance. Little did I know that tiny Christian school was where the Lord would take hold of my heart! I encountered people with an undeniable joy that I had never witnessed in any of the places I had been during my dancing career. These people didn’t perform; they were authentic, vulnerable, yet joyful. Months later, I surrendered my life to the Lord, and it changed the trajectory of the years to come. I wanted to attend a school where I would be able to pursue my passions and continue learning God’s word. I went on to pursue business and marketing degrees at Liberty University, where my view of God increased immensely.
After graduating in May of 2021, this jersey girl was ready to move to a new city and that city ended up being Dallas, TX! The means by which the Lord got me here was through an open position on the young adult’s team here at Watermark! I am beyond blessed to have been added to team Watermark, where the Lord continues to win my heart more and more each day!
