About Me!

I have been a member of St. Paul's Parish since 2001 and have been in the school office since 2009.  My husband Scott and I are high school sweethearts from Assumption High School.  We have five children:
    Brittney - Lives in Minneapolis and is working full time as an activities director and part time as a Barista at Starbucks.
    Kayla - A senior at Iowa, majoring in Criminal Justice and planning to work in Human Resources and continue her education in Law School.
    Maddilyn - A freshman at Iowa, majoring in Psychology.  She loves her dance club and attending activities at the Newman Catholic Center. 
    Emma - A sophomore at Assumption. She enjoys tennis, band, and driving with her school permit.
    Samuel - 3rd grader here at SPS and loves playing baseball, basketball and soccer. 
In my spare time I love to read, scrapbook, visit Pinterest, and go camping with my family.  I also have 3 dogs - Charlie, Izabella, and Maizy, and a cat Wrigley.  My favorite color is purple and I love koala bears, the Chicago Cubs, and Iowa Hawkeye basketball.
My job is to be friendly and helpful!  If you have any questions or concerns, let me know and I will do my best to help you out or at least point you in the right direction.  I am not just a "secretary"! Yes, I answer the phone, sort mail and open the door, but I also have many other responsibilities including (but not limited to):
  • Scheduling School events, maintaining/updating the school calendar
  • Updating the website
  • Supervising the lunch program
  • Administering first aid for injured staff/students

As you can see, I am very busy, but I absolutely love my job and am so blessed to be a part of the St. Paul's community.  I see grace and faith in our students and teachers every day, and my prayer life has grown tremendously since I've been at St. Paul's.
