I started working at Saint Ambrose in July 2003 and have been in the Early Childhood field since 1986. I previously worked at a Montessori School before starting at Saint Ambrose. I have been married for over 40 years and have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I live in Cottage Grove and enjoy working in my flower gardens – specializing in lilies. I also enjoy collecting agates and fossils. If you want to hear a cute pet story just ask me about my pugs. I enjoy all the wonderful children, their families and the staff at Saint Ambrose! I especially love it that my daily interactions and fun with the children make me feel young again!
