Born & raised in Fort Wayne, I am currently completing my undergraduate degree in Human Services at Purdue Fort Wayne along with two focus areas in Business Administration & the Justice System. I have a 12-year-old Saint Bernard/Bullmastiff dog named Ari & a 2-year-old Calico cat named Tater-Tot. Socializing with individuals from all backgrounds has always come naturally to me & I am excited to make a career out of it.
CUSTOMER RELATIONS & ENROLLMENT
I began working at BBBS at age 18 as I was inspired to give back to the agency because so much was given to me through the program. My Big showed me the true meaning of love through her constant support and encouragement. For that, I owe the agency as much as I can give.
Former line worker at International Harvester and priest for 20 years, I’ve worked at BBBS for 14 years interviewing potential Bigs and Littles. I am honored by the countless Bigs and Littles who have shared their life stories with me over the years and am grateful to help facilitate matches that enrich both.
They tell me I have one of the biggest smiles in the building, and I’m often who you see when you first come in the door. I have been with BBBS for 4 years and love the people I work with. I’m also the person who reaches out to you to help you get the process started in becoming a Big.
I have been working as a receptionist at Big Brothers Big Sisters for over 7 years. I also help out in Customer Relations when they need it. I am a 1978 graduate of Bishop Luers High School. Once a Knight always a Knight! I enjoy traveling, playing bingo and working on my family tree.
