I started working at St. Mary's in 2013, I worked briefly in the extension program before joining the preschool staff. I have worked in the four-year-old morning class for the past two years. My husband and I have been parishioners of St. Mary's for 28 years and we are strong proponents of Catholic education. We have five children, (ages 30, 27, 26, 22 & 11) they all attended St. Mary's and went on to Muskegon Catholic Central for high school (our youngest currently attends St. Mary's and will attend MCC). I attended twelve years of Catholic school in my hometown of Jackson, Michigan and attended Jackson College. I have 7 siblings, 37 nieces and nephews, and two adorable grandsons, so I have spent many years of my life surrounded by young children. I love working with preschoolers, it is a fun and fascinating age.
I enjoy spending time with my large and crazy family, love watching Notre Dame football (which we tend to take a bit too seriously), reading, biking and long runs outside to restore my sanity.
