Mrs. Jennifer Kricken » Biography


My husband Cole and I have been part of St. Rita Catholic Community for over 13 years. We have 2 daughters, Natalie (5th grade), and Bethany (3rd grade). I am originally from the north suburbs of Chicago and studied graphic arts at Northern Illinois University. I have held graphic design and marketing positions over the years but discovered a love for working with children while volunteering as a catechist just before my girls were born. In my free time I enjoy refinishing antique furniture, reading both fiction and nonfiction, trying new recipes, and writing and Illustrating children's books that I hope to have published someday. 
I am grateful to work alongside a wonderful group of teachers and staff! 
Go Spartans!
