Favorite Bible Verse:

John 3:16 "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that everyone who believes in Him won't perish but will have eternal life."

I was born in Milwaukee WI , later my parents moved our family to Adams-Friendship. I'm married to my husband Neal , have three children Dakota, Melissa, and Bentley.  We now live in Wisconsin Rapids  We are proud grandparents of five little ones.  Shortly after high school i had  gone to Moraine tech college for Early Childhood certification. I later went to Midstate technical college for an Associate in Applied Science, which I have been a registered nurse since 2003. I have always enjoyed caring/ helping others. I'm new to the job as a substitute teacher aid . I currently am also working as a private duty nurse. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work with children and care for ill patients. When I'm not working, I enjoy camping, fishing, gardening and cooking.

The school's theme this year is "Connected" (John 15:5).   Share a time in your life when you saw the importance of being connected to Jesus.

As a nurse I have cared for many ill or dying patients, families would ask " why ?" . I found comfort in God and his words to help guide those tough/ sad conversations.
