Short Biography:

I began my teaching career in 1983, fresh out of college, beginning at St. Anthony of Padua School as a first-grade teacher. My entire career has been spent at St. Anthony School, teaching first, third, and fourth grades. I myself am a product of Catholic education. I grew up on the Westside of Grand Rapids, the youngest of ten children, and currently reside in Comstock Park.  I am a member of the Basilica of St. Adalbert Parish.  My greatest treasure is being part of a faith-filled community!!
