Fun facts

My birthday is on Halloween. I am the oldest of 5 girls. My husband, Sean, and I own Sunset Manufacturing in St. Joseph, which specializes in sheet metal forming and fabrication. We have 5 kids and will celebrate 25 years of marriage in June 2020. My husband and I met in a community theater production of “Camelot” in 1993, and lucky for us, our love of music and theater was passed down to our children.
