A lifelong Catholic, I grew up in Pewamo, Michigan as a parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Parish, attending St. Joseph Catholic School through 8th grade. I married my high school sweetheart Jordan and our jobs, both of us in the furniture industry, brought us to Grand Rapids. We have been parishioners of St. Jude since about 2008. We have two young kids (Savannah, Dominic) you can find wiggling around during the 10:30am Sunday mass most weekends when we aren’t visiting family back in our hometown. Our kids attend All Saints Academy and we are proud supporters of our amazing school.
I am the youngest of 7 kids. Most of my family members and in-laws live back in my hometown within an hour drive and we are very close. I grew up on a cattle farm so I am a country girl at heart. We often escape to Pewamo on our weekends for simplicity and hanging out with family since we are lucky to have both mine and mine and Jordan’s family nearby. Since moving to Grand Rapids, we have made some amazing connections and friendships through work, church and All Saints Academy.
