Director Message

I've been privileged to work with the Divine Savior ministry for 15 years. Throughout my career, I have served in the classroom as well as in various leadership roles. Both professionally and in my own family, a desire to support those with special needs has become a passion. I am excited to lead Divine Savior School in carrying out this mission!
