University of Dayton, Communication Arts; Indiana University, Special Education

My neighbor had cerebral palsy along with great humor and love for life. I learned at a young age that we need to appreciate each other’s strengths and weaknesses, ultimately learning from everyone we encounter.

I started my career in public relations at Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton, Ohio, having attended parochial grade and high schools. Marriage brought me to Indianapolis. Here, I have been a  preschool teacher, seamstress, and a high school special education teacher. Most importantly, God gave us a daughter and son who attended Our Lady of Lourdes and Scecina Memorial High School. These schools gave them a wonderful foundation for college. I was widowed while our son was at Scecina, which led me to Special Education at Warren Central High School and Scecina. Both children are married and blessed me with additional gifts of three grandsons and two granddaughters. Besides family, I enjoy baking, gardening, sewing, and swimming.
