I have been blessed to be the school secretary at St. Paul’s for the past 28 years. My family has a long history with St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School. My paternal grandmother, both of my parents, my siblings and I, as well as my children are all graduates of St. Paul’s Lutheran School and lifelong members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. I am delighted that my granddaughter is the fifth generation of my family to attend school here at St. Paul’s, having just started preschool. With the exception of 15 months in North Carolina, I have lived in the Troy area all of my life. I am a graduate of Triad High School and worked as an administrative assistant in offices in St. Louis and Edwardsville until I started having children. I was privileged to enjoy thirteen years as a stay-at-home mom, before starting my tenure here at St. Paul’s. My three adult children all live in the area and I enjoy watching my two grandchildren, ages 17 months and 3 years, every opportunity I can get. It is my mission to assist the students, parents and staff in any way that makes belonging here at St. Paul’s an enjoyable experience.
