What is your favorite memory of being in school?
I was fortunate to attend a small Catholic School and was able to form long lasting friendships with the people I knew from kindergarten through high school. I have wonderful memories of times we shared!
What do you value most about St. Patrick?
I value the opportunity to attend Mass, teach and model the Catholic faith at St. Patrick. I look forward to celebrating religious holidays like Christmas and Easter with the students.
Who or what inspires you most?
Heroes throughout time always inspire me. However, the risks and sacrifices made by our military inspire me to never take our freedom for granted.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I enjoy walks on the beach, spending time with my family, especially my grandchildren!
What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice I have ever received and which I give as well is to work hard and don’t give up. Determined people who believe in themselves and work hard can accomplish their dreams!
