Growing up as the third oldest in a family of nine kids, I knew from early on I would dedicate my life to children. I was born into it – my husband frequently tells me I was born a grandma. I take that as a great compliment! I started my career in 1974 as a licensed practical nurse at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. That is where I continued to learn about what matters in life from the experts: the kids!
My passion for children has never wavered. My goal is to enable them to have the best life possible using their God-given gifts. To help mold them into who they want to be, standing proud along the way.
I am also certified as a pediatric mental health specialist and can provide hypnotherapy to help children learn how to deal with stressors, anxiety, habits and other medical concerns. I have found that by teaching them how much power they have over the choices they make, they make better decisions and amazingly improve their health and well-being.
My husband and I have a daughter who is also a nurse and a son-in-law who have recently relocated to Wisconsin, and three awesome grandchildren who continue to amaze us and fill our life with love, peace and laughter. After spending 24 years in Florida, we have recently come back up north to join the rest of the family and the millions of other Packer fans!
