I have a background in education and classical music and currently am an executive assistant in a patent law firm in Omaha. I have been a member of the St. Cecilia Cathedral Choir and a cantor since 2009. I feel called to serve in the music ministry of the church, to join my voice with those of the choir and the congregation to prayerfully “make a joyful noise to the Lord”. I am grateful to be a member of the Cathedral Choir, to serve the parish of St. Cecilia and the Diocese of Omaha. One of the things I put on my “to do” list for this Jubilee Year of Mercy was to make a pilgrimage to a spiritual site for prayer and reflection. I figured it would be somewhere nearby. Never did I think it would be Rome – and with my choir!
