When I returned to Milwaukee, I completed examinations for a nursing home administrator license and in 2006 was appointed the nursing home administrator at St. Ann Rest Home in Milwaukee.  In 2013, I earned a Master’s Degree in Leadership Studies and Health Care Administration Specialization. Providing quality care to the elderly is my passion.

I am a School Sister of Notre Dame and am currently serving as a Pastoral Minister for about 125 of our retired Sisters at our Health Care facility in Elm Grove. I loved teaching kindergarten and primary grades, as well as, being a principal of a K3 thru 8th at a Catholic grade school.
