Hello there. I'm glad you decided to stop by. Please feel free to contact me about any aspect of All Saints Parish Communication – including our website, the Sunday bulletin, Parish Newsletter story ideas, etc. I invite you to share your story, an idea, a concern that is important to you. Perhaps you'd like to join the Communication Support Team. Let's talk! I am typically out of the office on Fridays, but feel free to leave me a message.

Brief Bio
I'm from Fond du Lac, a small town in southern Wisconsin. I attended Catholic grade school and High School and went on to the UW-Eau Claire where I received a dual teaching licensing for Elementary and Special Education. Furthering my education with a degree in Networking & Data Communications - I came to All Saints from Northwest Airlines after 9/11 at the invitation of Fr. Tiffany.
My husband & I were high school sweethearts - even though cities apart. Married almost 39 years, we've been blessed with a wonderful family - including 2 little girls who call me their Minnesota Grandma.

Interesting Facts
I have begun to tackle my ‘bucket list.’ Dipping my toes in Lake Tahoe last summer began the adventure. Celebrating a Colorado Christmas, complete with sled dogs, hot cocoa, a horse-drawn sleigh ride, surrounded by family and mountains counted for #2. I believe there is a book in me, waiting patiently to be written. I am drawn to stories and the colors of the sea. Long, silent retreats agree with me, and almost always, I wear my socks inside out. 

A Favorite Spiritual Quote
"Solitude is the place of purification and transformation. It is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter...and the place of our salvation."
