“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6.

I was born in Illinois into a family with deep roots in the Lutheran faith. My father was a Lutheran pastor, my uncle is a Lutheran pastor, and my father-in-law was a Lutheran teacher.

I received my B.A. from Aquinas College and my M.A. in Educational Leadership from Grand Valley State University. I taught 7th and 8th grade students at Blessed Sacrament School in Grand Rapids for nine years before coming to St. Michael in 2005.

I am married and have two children. I considered it a privilege to serve as the principal of St. Michael.
