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.
The school's theme this year is EVERLASTING ROCK. How is Jesus your Everlasting Rock? What does our theme verse mean to you?
God is my everlasting rock! No matter what is going on in my life - whatever struggles I'm going through or blessings that I have received, God is there. He is a firm, solid foundation that I can always count on. :)
Do you like going to the movies or do you prefer to watch at home? What is your favorite movie? Why?
I do like to go to movies but since the virus hit, that just is not possible. I do like to watch movies at home too. My favorite movie... that's a tough question. I like a good comedy and happily ever afters too. I guess I would say National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. No matter what time of year it's on, I will watch it and laugh. It reminds me of my family and it is not Christmas without it! :)
