I am a South Side Irish Catholic born and raised in St. Barnabas Parish and a proud graduate of Willows Academy. My degree is in Mass Communications from Illinois State University, which led me to the Chicago Tribune on their first computer paginated display advertising team.
My husband Bud and I were blessed with 6 children in 10 years, which shifted my professional life to family life. We joined Our Lady of the Wayside parish in 1999 and got involved in everything from CFM to coaching to school and parish ministries.
Most recently, I have worked for the Arlington Heights Park District and the Willows Academy. It was a privilege and a joy to serve my alma mater but now, I’m exciting to serve the Catholic Church in a new role as St. James works to Be Disciples and Make Disciples. I look forward meeting you, so please stop by the Parish Office and say hello!
