I've been attending St. Mary's off and on since I was in high school. I got married in this church to my husband Jeff in 1984. I finally converted and became Catholic in 1997 with the help of Father Kist and Father Trick. I have volunteered with PSR, Vacation Bible School, Rosary Altar Society and more. I have three grown children, a granddaughter and another grandbaby on the way. I joined the staff as secretary in 2012 after working as a youth program director at the YMCA. Every day I wear a lot of hats and this job can be a challenge to keep it all flowing, but I really love it and am happy to serve the parish in any way I can.
I joined St. Mary's church in 1992 when Steve and I were married (Fr. Kist performed the ceremony). I have three adult children who all attended St. Mary's school from k-8th grade. I have volunteered with Glory for 8 years and in the Youth Minister position for 1. I have worked for Darke Co. Board of Developmental Disabilities for 12 years. Before that was home with the kids. I love to read. Mexican food is my favorite and if I could do whatever I wanted I would travel and see new places, meet new people and see how others live. It seems I have immersed myself in this age group all the way around as my caseload is supporting children ages 14 to HS graduation and their families. :) I enjoy this age group very much.
