Director of St. Francis Xavier Child Care Center
The love of children has brought me to St Francis Xavier and I am very grateful for the opportunity. I have lived in Missoula since 1996 and prior to that, every section possible of Montana. I am a Montana native through and through.
Life has truly blessed me and I am very grateful, but I am most proud of my 3 amazing children and one son in law, all of whom have grown and started their own lives. They are good people that are kind, honest and hard working. I’m thrilled to have my daughter, Kelsey, join me and our child care team. Her twin brother, Joel, will be spreading his wings and working remotely from the St Paul/Minneapolis area this fall. My youngest son, Parker, is a senior at the University of Montana.
I have a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montana and ran a child care center years ago. For the past 11 years I was with PayneWest Insurance. When approached about this opportunity, I knew I had to grab it, follow my heart and do what I love; build relationships with children and their families. At St Francis Xavier WEE Care, we will provide a home away from home in a safe, loving and learning environment.
Outside of here, I’m walking, hiking, biking or finding some way to get my step goal! By the way, I am an avid GRIZ fan and look forward to this upcoming season. Go Griz!
Feel free to come by anytime, say hello and take a look around.
Thank You and Enjoy Today!
