Serving Bonner & Prendergast since: 2020
B.S. Saint Joseph’s University
M.A. Saint Joseph’s University
Chair of the Archbishop Prendergast Hall of Fame Committee
After working for 21 years as the Director of Government and Community Relations at Saint Joseph’s University, I decided to leave higher education and look for a career change and happily landed at Bonner & Prendie. Prior to working at Saint Joseph’s, I logged 16 years as an Assistant Operations Manager for Macy’s, running the King of Prussia store, which was then the top-grossing store for the company. I have a B.A. in Theology and an M. S. in Organizational Development and Leadership, both from Saint Joseph’s University. I taught CCD at Saint Bernadette Parish for twelve years. I also worked on Bonner and Prendie theater productions as an assistant to the director for 11 years. We were the first Archdiocesan High School to put on a production of Cats! My four children are all graduates of Bonner and Prendie, and I have dozens of cousins and their spouses and children (approximately 50 total ) who have also attended Bonner and Prendie. I guess you could say we are steeped in tradition!
I currently serve as the chair of the Prendie Hall of Fame Committee. Fun fact: while at Prendie, I was a member of the 1974 Catholic League Championship Softball team - our plaque hangs in the hallway here at school!
I live in Broomall with my husband Drew (Bonner ‘73). We enjoy college football and college basketball, high school basketball, field hockey, and taking road trips. We also enjoy our summer home in Sea Isle City, NJ, and spending time with our children, their spouses, and our five granddaughters.
Why Bonner & Prendergast?
I often say the best four years of my life were spent at Prendie. I loved every minute in that building. I made lifelong friendships and thrived spiritually, academically, and personally. I am thrilled to again be walking the halls of the school! The faculty and staff are dedicated to making this a memorable experience for each and every student. For me, this is truly “coming Home.”
