About Mrs. Sullivan:  I am blessed to be married to my wonderful husband Tom Sullivan and be the mother of 4 terrific children, Colin, David Beth and Caity, all of whom are graduates of St Thomas Aquinas School.  I have one grandchild named Noah and I currently have 2 more on the way.  My family and my friends are the biggest blessing of my life and I thank God every day for all of them.  I love to read, spend time with friends, garden, walk and just be on this beautiful earth that we live on.
