I moved to Florida with my family in 2004, joined OSLC, and have been actively involved in the church ministry ever since. Two years later, I joined the OSLS staff. Here, I have been able to work with all ages, helping them to grow as God's children. My two younger daughters, Alyssa and Elizabeth, were confirmed here and are working on their college degrees. My oldest, Katy, lives in Milwaukee and has a degree in Social Work. She has overcome the obstacles of being deaf and is the reason that I learned to sign. God has lead me in directions I never thought I could go and continues to do so even today.

I have been working with children since 2005 at two different schools back in Atlanta, and here in Plantation. In 2016 my two boys, Carlito and Tony, began attending Our Savior and were greeted with open arms. I was very happy when a staff position in the aftercare program became available. I am very experienced working with preschool age children and love having the care of them including the care of the elementary and middle school students. I enjoy gardening with the students, as well as creating crafts and using our imagination to play games.

I am a true Floridian, born and raised in sunny South Florida. I was married in 2012, and have two wonderful children, James and Jenna. My family and I love to spend time outdoors; camping, fishing and paddle boarding are some of our favorites. My son started attending Our Savior Lutheran School for the 2016/2017 school year and I became involved with the school by volunteering as room mom and track and field coach. Since I was spending a majority of my time here, naturally I fell in love with the school and the people. When they asked if I wanted to work here I said yes! So as of the 2017/2018 school year, I work with the preschool aftercare and as a substitute.
