Personal Life

I feel blessed to work at Dutton Christian School because of the wonderful students and staff.  My husband, Jon, and I have three children, Anna is freshman at South Christian, Ethan is in 7th and Katherine is in 6th, and we have a golden retriever named Jack.  We’ve been members at Brookside CRC for more than ten years.  I enjoy reading, running, traveling, and gardening.
