What I love most about working at St. John’s:
The community, the parents I work with on SJE  projects are the same parents of students I get to teach.


Where I’m from:
I grew up in Sidney, Nebraska, and am a die hard Husker fan! 
Go Big Red!

Interests and Hobbies:
I am a sports fanatic, I like to watch, I like to coach, I like to play!


A personal note:
My husband, Gabriel, and I have been married since 2005. However, we have known each other since the 2nd grade! We have two amazing children, Trey and Olivia.


Favorite thing about teaching:
My favorite thing about teaching is getting to be a part of your child's life, even if for just a moment. Seeing your children every morning walk to their classes after prayer, or getting to have lunch with them, and now getting to teach them in Christian Leadership. Your children inspire me to be a better person, a better Catholic, and motivate me to follow the path of service work.
