Staff Member: Kari Caulum
I have worked at St. Mary, Portage since 1998. Currently I serve as the Parish Secretary. I grew up in DeForest, Wisconsin and moved to Portage when I met my wonderful husband Joel. We have been married since 1997. I have three fabulous step children, Claire, Tyler and Paige and an awesome Havanese named Oliver.
What I love most about my position at St. Mary, Portage is the interaction I have with the parishioners that come to the office. When I moved to Portage this job made it possible for me to connect with people of the community and in the process make a lot of meaningful friendships! I love coming to work and feel blessed to be surrounded by a fabulous staff.
In my spare time I love photography, singing, and playing the piano. I come from a very musical family so music has always been an important part of my life. If there was one thing I’d want people to know about me, it’s that time spent with my family is one of the things I treasure most.
