Belinda Van Kerschaver was born in Gent, Belgium. As a child, she went to a Catholic School and wore a uniform like her children do now. While in school, she studied many languages: Dutch, French, German, and English. She graduated from high school in 1986. She also worked for City Hall in Belgium and does solar working with her husband in research. After the birth of her son, Mrs. Van Kerschaver had her own business working as a beautician in order to be able to work from home. She loves working with kids and volunteered at St Joseph’s for three years before becoming a staff member. She now works in First Grade as the teacher aide. In her free time, she is learning to golf with her family, loves to cook, works at the YMCA, and spend time with her children.
