Brief Bio:
In this 2018-2019 school year, I am in my 20th year working at All Saints Catholic School as a Teacher’s Aide for Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.  I started this position when my son Matthew was a Kindergartner!  It is such a joy and a blessing in my life to help and teach the children for the three school years, and to get to know them and their families so well!  I am also a catechist for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Religious Program in the school for Preschool and Kindergarten.

Interesting Facts:
My husband Duane and I just celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary this September.  He is a Police Officer in Prior Lake.  We have been parishioners of All Saints for 27 years this coming spring and we are so grateful to be part of this beautiful Catholic Church and School community.   We have one son, Matthew, who is 24 years old, and he attended All Saints School from Kindergarten through 8th Grade and is a proud alumnus of the school!

I am involved in Liturgical Ministry at Mass as a Sacristan, Lector, and Eucharistic Minister.  I enjoy prayer time, going for walks, reading, hiking, baking, bike rides, and travel.
