Hello, I am a Colorado native and a parishioner at St. Joseph for nearly 18 years. I serve our community as an active Knights of Columbus member (Council 1214) and an usher for 9:30 Mass. I attended Catholic elementary school, Regis High School in Denver and hold a doctorate in mechanical engineering. As a director of an international industry / university cooperative center at CSU, I have worked for 25 years to mainstream solar energy. I have founded a number of companies and am a strong advocate for entrepreneurship. On weekends I will be on my bicycle, fishing, gardening, target shooting or out on a hike. Let me know your ideas on how we can continue to make St Joseph’s a wonderful parish.
Born and raised in New Jersey, I and my wife Stephanie, and our three sons, have called Fort Collins and this parish home since 1993. I’m in awe of God’s never-ending blessings in my life. The Pastoral Council has been an important part of my faith journey. It is my prayer that during my tenure, I’ve been able to glorify God and contribute toward enhancing the faith and love of His people. Stephanie and I own Goes Funeral Care and Crematory. We consider it our little ministry.
Hi! I’m excited to be a part of the Saint Joseph Pastoral Council and support our vibrant Catholic community, while fostering a setting that encourages active participation in our young adults. I moved from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Fort Collins in 2001 to attend CSU. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2005, and have been a member of the parish since 2008.
I am the Chairperson for the Saint Joseph Pastoral Council. I am a single mother to a wonderful 13-year-old boy who is an 8th Grader at Saint Joseph Catholic School. I also work full time as the office manager for The Speech & Language Stimulation Center, Inc. I bring to the Council my love of and involvement with our school and our parish. I have been a parishioner here at Saint Joseph for 27 years.
