Biography

Bachelor of Science, Chemistry, St. Joseph’s College; Master of Science, Organic Chemistry, Purdue University; teacher certification, Indiana Wesleyan University
I was born in Chicago and raised in Northwest Indiana, where I love taking walks on the beach and through the dunes. While attending St. Joe’s, I met my future husband and moved to Indy, where I’ve lived for 27 years with him and my four children. Immediately after college, I worked as an analytical chemist at Superior Oil Company in Indianapolis for about four years. I began graduate school at IUPUI to pursue a doctorate in organic chemistry. My research was floundering, and God provided me the opportunity to leave with a master’s degree and begin employment as a medicinal chemist at Eli Lilly and Co. After seven good years at Lilly, the pull to teach directed me to my current career. After completing my teaching certification at IWU, I went to Cathedral High School in Indianapolis to teach science. After two years teaching at Cathedral, the chemistry position at Scecina opened for me and I took it. I have been teaching all kinds of science courses at Scecina since (for the past eight years).
