This year my husband, Bill Fanelli and I will celebrate out 30th year of marriage! We came to Indiana to work for Eli Lilly from Michigan and Ohio respectively. I spent 7 years as an Analytical Chemist both at the Lilly Clinton plant and in Indianapolis. After we married we moved to Lafayette, Indiana where we began to raise our four children and I took on my new roll as a stay at home Mom. We moved back to Indianapolis just in time to register our oldest children at St. Barnabas in 1997. Our children are all graduates of Saint Barnabas and Roncalli: Dominic, Notre Dame 2011; Joe, DePauw 2013; Anna, Saint Mary's College, 2015 and Mark, Purdue Electrical Engineering 2018. In 2011 with only one child at home and an empty nest approaching I chose to become a teacher so I could continue my purpose to grow and develop young people. I am very excited to be back "home" at St. Barnabas teaching my favorite subject, science!
