I was born, raised, and currently reside in Stamford, CT.  I am a true believer in Catholic education.  My three sons, ages 31, 26 and 23, were fortunate enough to attend Catholic schools from Pre-K through high school, where they received a wonderful academic and faith-based education. I was very involved in their schools as a volunteer and also as a member of various fundraising committees.  

 

Upon graduating from the University of Connecticut, I started working at Pitney Bowes in Stamford. After the birth of my first child, I chose to stay home to raise my family.  Once my third child began pre-school, I went back to work as an assistant nursery school teacher, rotating between two, three, and four year old classrooms. I immediately discovered I loved working with children.  What a rewarding experience!  18 years later, I cannot imagine doing anything else, and I am very excited and proud to be a part of the Catholic Academy of Stamford.
