Tell us about yourself:
I am a long-time parishioner of St. James and deeply invested in our parish community, especially Religious Education. I grew up in Arlington Heights and attended St. James School & St. Viator High School where I met my husband, Matt. After college, I started my career as a middle school math teacher. We were shortly blessed with four amazing children: Kennedy, Matthew, MayBelle, and Daniel. It is a joy to raise our children in the same community where we grew up. I love to travel, camp, play music, read, cook outside, host parties, and just be with friends and family. I am overjoyed to serve the St. James community.
