I have a passion for helping others in any way that I can. My family says I love to talk. So, my favorite part of working in the office has to be greeting our students, staff, and families who stops by the office, whether they need help with something or just someone to listen.

God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and four sweet children. They are all at LCA and I love that we are all apart of the LCA family!
