I am a staff member and mother to three young men of Oratory. Michael '20 and James '22 are both alumni of OP. Colin is currently a junior at OP and will graduate in '24. Prior to coming to Oratory, I was a middle school mathematics teacher and the Director of Advancement at Saint James School in Basking Ridge.

I began as a student at OP in the fall of 2000 knowing very little about its history or culture. Now, I have been a teacher, coach, and dean for 15 years and fully understand what makes OP a special place. Oratory has allowed me to be myself both as a student and as a faculty member.

"One of my favorite memories at OP was in Mrs. Michalski's tenth grade religion class when we sang "Only Jesus" and the 11th graders joined in with us. It was also a great moment when I found out that I made Varsity Baseball as a freshman."
