Professional Biography

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Platteville in 1991 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and minors in Computer Science and Business Administration.  After college, I worked for Johnson Controls Incorporated in purchasing for almost 5 years.  I left to become a stay-at-home mom for the next few years.  In 2003, I started doing the bookkeeping for the church my family and I attended in Arizona until we moved to CA in 2004.  In 2005, I started doing the bookkeeping for Church of the Chimes in San Jose where I worked until coming to work at SJCS in 2007. 

Personal Biography

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin in a family of five.  I have two older sisters that both live there.  My husband, Jeff, and I have been married since 1990.  We have three children: Jean-Luc , Amanda and Kathryn .  When I am not working, you can probably find me baking, reading or spending time with my family.  I am a member of Central Christian Church here in San Jose.

Christian Philosophy of Education

As the business manager, I deal with many different people and sometimes during difficult times.  It is my goal to show compassion and kindness to all families in all circumstances.  I also want to encourage families, as well as staff and the school itself, to live out a life of faithful stewardship using the resources that God has given each of us.
