My love of St. Mary Catholic Schools started with my children’s experiences in the school system.  I was so fortunate to become a Learning Specialist at St. Gabriel’s, St. Mary’s and the middle school.  I received Bachelor’s degree in 1993 from UW-Oshkosh and my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership in 1998 from UW-Oshkosh.  Since graduating, I have taught in the Oshkosh, Neenah and Appleton School Districts teaching Special Education.

Not only do I have the opportunity to be a staff member, but I also am lucky enough to coach cross country and track focusing on the middle school but supporting the high school as well.  I am passionate about encouraging students beyond the classroom to be their best.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband and spending time with my three children.  I continue to share my time and talents with SMCS as needed through Booster Club, fundraising, Zephyrfest and more!  I teach fitness classes at the YMCA and hope to see you there!  I am blessed to share my talents through my involvement at church.
