Our Lord has blessed my family with six children. I was raised at the Croatian Catholic church of St. Nikola Tavelic, where from the age of 12, I was in the choir and read the Liturgy of the Word. My children were altar servers there also. Branko and I renewed our vows on our 10th anniversary and we have been married for 26 years. My family was actively involved before deciding to become full-time parishioners of John the Baptist. Our children attend both Freeman Catholic College and John the Baptist. Today I am a part of the Parish Council, where I pray God will walk with me in this journey together. One of my skills is to diffuse arguments and bring people together. I like to be surrounded by peace.
