While I was born in Elgin, Illinois, I spent most of my childhood living in Lombard as the youngest of 5 children. I attended St. Paul Bible College in Minnesota, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
I taught Special Education during my first five years of teaching. Shortly after joining Mansio, I received my Montessori certification from MECA Seton. I’ve had 28 years of teaching experience at Mansio.
My 14-year-old daughter Kaitlyn and I currently reside in Geneva. My boys both live in Florida. Joshua is stationed at the Jacksonville Naval Base. Christopher lives in Palm Bay Florida with his wife and 3 daughters. I love being a Nana to Alexandria, Sophia, and Isabella.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading and scrapbooking. I really enjoy traveling as well and take advantage of the opportunity any chance I get. The beach is my happy place.
