Hello! I joined the staff of Wauwatosa Virtual Academy this past February and am excited to be the only administrative assistant to help the school run smoothly. My desk is a very busy spot and I hope to meet or talk to many of you through the various types of communication that I use on a daily basis. An interesting fact about me is that I have previously worked in a virtual school before, so I am sort of an expert at building relationships with our families from afar! I recently moved back to the area after living in Appleton for 18 years and am happy to now be closer to my family & past friends. I have a busy household with 4 children (most of whom are out of high school) and 2 dogs! I am only a phone call away if you need help with anything at all, or I can at least point you in the right direction, and always with a smile on my face!
