I feel very fortunate to be here at St. Vincent Early Learning Center helping children grow by serving them healthy and nutritional meals. I am a certified food service handler (Serve Safe Certification) and stay updated on the (CACFP) Child and Adult Care Food Program through ongoing training and webinars. I received a local Unsung Hero Award in 2021 and feel so honored to be awarded this. I started here at St. Vincent Early Learning Center right out of high school, in 1979. I knew from the beginning this is where I belong, my heart is so full of joy being here daily with all the children. I love spending time with my grandchildren reading books and working puzzles.
