I came to Siena from New Jersey in 1970 and have never left. I graduated with my BA in 1974, then my MA in 1975. I was a teacher for 18 years at St. Joseph Academy, the Adrian Dominican-sponsored Montessori and elementary school right next to Siena Heights, and then the principal for another 15 years. During my principalship, I entered the educational leadership cohort and received my Specialist of Art degree in 2002. My oldest son, Matthew, also graduated that same day with his BA degree. I was honored to be the student commencement speaker that day.
Currently, I am serving as the Executive Assistant to the President, Sr. Peg Albert, OP, here at Siena Heights University and have been in this position for 7 years. I also was an adjunct instructor in the Teacher Education program for over 13 years. I truly love education and believe being a life long learner is important.
I live in Adrian, MI with my husband David and will celebrate 40 years of marriage this May 2015. I have two sons, Matthew and Adam, a daughter-in-law, Priscilla, and two adorable grandsons, Brennan and Theodore. They are the loves of my life!
