Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to teach children. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the little ones. I have provided child care in the Wisconsin Rapids area for over 31 years to a variety of ages.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin Rapids and went to a parochial grade school as a child. This opportunity instilled a passion for Jesus in my everyday life and a learning about his undying love for us.
I’ve been married to my best friend, Tim for 29 ½ years. (Which by the way I met at the parochial grade school.) He works for Ocean Spray in Wisconsin Rapids as a
We have 2 awesome children. Our son Tyler is 26 years old and lives in Green Bay. He is a MAKO product specialist at Stryker Orthopaedics. (He gets to run a really cool robot for surgeries.) Tyler is engaged to Bridget and getting married September 27, 2019. Our daughter Sarah is 24 years old and graduated from UW-Oshkosh in May. She lives in Sun Prairie and is a care coordinator/marketing specialist for CI Therapies. (She gets to work at a variety of locations in the Madison area.) Sarah is engaged to Steve and they are planning a fall of 2021 wedding date.
Both Tyler and Sarah attended Immanuel Lutheran School from Kindergarten – 8th grade and graduating. The education they received here is outstanding and still to this day has shaped their lives and relationship with Jesus.
In my spare time I like to go to concerts, read and travel…especially to the beach.
I’m excited to be a part of Immanuel Lutheran School again and to help teach and share God's wonderful love for us.
This year's theme is VICTORY and focuses on our victory through Jesus Christ. What does this mean to you?
Jesus died on the cross and rose again on Easter morning. He has victory over the devil and death. I am a sinner and will have a place with him in heaven because of what he did for ALL of us.
What is your favorite zoo animal?
I love to visit the zoo so it is very hard to pick just one. I would have to say ocean animals such as dolphins, seals, walruses and whales. They are very intelligent creatures and I love the ocean.
If you could go back in time to change one thing, what would it be? Why?
This is a very difficult question to answer. We all live with things we would like to change. As I have gotten older, I've come to realize that life is too short to go back and change things if you could. So I guess I wouldn't change a thing.
God has a plan. All of the decisions and things in my life have happened for a reason. They have made me who I am today.
