Devin Beals

Mrs. Beals is expecting her second child in August and has decided to stop working for the time being and stay home with her children. She would definitely like to return to St. Vincent’s in the future, so we have not seen the last of Mrs. Beals! We wish her the best of luck in her easy, relaxing time off with her young ones.

We highly recommend this session to parents, in particular parents of older children who have access to the Internet and social media. (NetSmartz, the group that has presented for the students and parents in the past, will visit the students on May 2, but they are no longer doing parent presentations.)
