I am the proud product of Catholic education. My elementary school years were spent at Nativity of Our Lord in Saint Paul. I attended Cretin High School and graduated from the College of Saint Thomas in 1986. During college I also attended four years at Saint John Vianney Seminary. I later attended Saint Paul Seminary as a lay student for three years.
From 1986 – 1996, I worked at various parishes in the Archdiocese as a youth minister, director of faith formation, and director of religious education respectively.
My move to Catholic education leadership being in 1997 when I worked at Saint Mary’s School in Owatonna, MN. I taught 6-8 grade middle school religion full time and was the assistant principal.
I obtained my Master of Science in 2002 in Educational Leadership and Specialist Degree in 2003 in Educational Administration; both from Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am licensed as a K-12 Principal through the State of Minnesota.
I have also worked at Our Lady of Peace School in South Minneapolis, Lourdes High School in Rochester, Bethlehem Academy in Faribault, and now at Saint Hubert School in Chanhassen.
