I married Jim Miller in 1984 and have 2 grown sons, Jimmy & Michael. Jimmy & Michael are graduates of Sacred Heart School. Jim & I believe it was the best investment in their religious & academic career! Both boys earned good grades and achieved honor roll throughout their years at Sacred Heart. The excellent education and exposure to the latest technology inspired Jimmy to pursue a computer degree in college. The opportunity to attend Exchange City with Junior Achievements and serve on Student Council inspired Michael to pursue a business degree. Jimmy is attending college at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne for an Information Systems Computer Degree in cyber securities. Michael is attending college at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis for a Business Degree.
I enjoy my vocation as a Catholic School Nurse and look forward to serving the students and staff daily. Every child deserves a school nurse!
Best of Health to All!
