Born and raised in Cadillac, Michigan, I grew up with four brothers and two sisters. I attended St. Ann Catholic School through the 7th grade and Cadillac Middle and High Schools. I graduated from Central Michigan University and later attended Grand Valley State University. I married in 1990, and started my teaching career here at St. Anthony's. My husband Joe and I have two children, Jamie and Annie. I enjoy watching sports, especially basketball, and I also love to read, sing, and garden. I love teaching at St. Anthony's and feel blessed to have been working with this wonderful community since 1990!
