"As a funeral director, I strive to provide the best possible service through remembrance and tribute to lives that were well lived. Being able to achieve a meaningful funeral experience for each family requires careful listening and attention-to-detail, as well as an understanding of each family's needs.

Through my experience as a funeral director, I have found great importance in providing grief support and hope for the children of our families in the community. I am proud to be on the founding board of Healing Hearts of Waukesha County. Healing Hearts of Waukesha County is a not-for-profit organization offering compassion, hope and healing through guided peer support for children experiencing loss and the adults who care about them.

I am also honored to serve the families of Waukesha and surrounding communities through funeral service, death care education and other community activities. As natives of Maine, my husband Jason and I and our four children, Micah, Leah, Ethan and Owen are happy to call Wisconsin home."

I am here and I am ready to serve. I attended Milwaukee Area Technical College. I have an Associate’s degree in Mortuary Science. I have been with my husband Roosevelt for 20 years.

After several deaths in my family, I discovered my empathy for grieving people. I understand the importance of the funeral day for grieving families. I work at Cesarz, Charapata and Zinnecker because this team has the great ability to help the grieving families at one of the most important times of their lives.
