Volunteer Spotlight: Sister Annette Muckerheide

Sr.Annette1As a member of one of WIN’s first Boards, Sister Annette Muckerheide developed a deep appreciation for WIN’s mission and  was committed to returning as a volunteer upon retirement. She now tirelessly volunteers at Working In Neighborhoods, working on WIN’s Quarterly Newsletter, in addition to helping neighborhood children in the afterschool tutoring program among other tasks.

Annette Muckerheide, SC, is a graduate of the College of Mount St. Joseph, has a Masters’ degree in Biology from Drake University, and a Ph.D. in Immunology and Microbiology from the University of Cincinnati. She began her teaching career in high schools in Albuquerque, NM, Cleveland, OH, and Kettering, OH.  After 34 years of research and teaching at the College of Mount St. Joseph, where she also chaired the Biology Department for many of those years,  she retired  as a Professor Emerita. She has for many years been interested in the connection between science and spirituality, and enjoys diversions such as bicycling, gardening, hiking, and art.

WIN deeply appreciates Sister Annette’s wonderful work. We are so lucky to have her!
