Favorite Bible Verse:  I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. – Psalm 139:14

I went to a Lutheran school, similar to St. John’s, and it created some of my fondest memories.  As I graduated I knew how hard it would be to find a job at such a place, until God’s plan for my life revealed differently.  I love the atmosphere and community at St. John’s.  As a school body, we can worship, pray, and praise God together as one.  It is my passion to continue showing children God’s love for them and help them go into the world to do the same.

When I’m not working I love spending time with my husband, son, and dog.  I also enjoy yoga, zumba, and the Blackhawks!  Although it can be hard to find the time, I love to read.

One fun fact:  I am obsessed with Coffee!!
