Educational Background:

I received my Bachelors degree from California State University, Fresno. I entered into graduate school with a desire to become a Speech Pathologist. While in graduate school, we were required to become certified teachers too. This was a blessing in disguise. This allowed me to segue into teaching in the classroom. In 2016, I earned a Masters in Education Administration.

Professional Experience:

I have worked with students as young as 3 and as old as 80. After graduating from college, I worked as a teacher in a Speech and Language preschool class. I then moved into the corporate world and taught adults for the next 8 years. I moved out of the corporate world to raise my children. I taught VBS, Sunday School and Pre-School over the next 13 years. During that time, I was Director of Children’s Ministry for 5 years. I returned to teaching for 2003-2004 school year. It was a wonderful return to education. Since the 2003-2004 school year I have held a variety of positions within Phoenix Christian, and today I am happy to serve as the S.E.E. Director.

Personal Testimony:

I wish I had an amazing story about a moment in time that is frozen in my memory when I "BECAME A CHRISTIAN". I was raised in a home where church attendance was mandatory. In junior high, my friend invited me to her church. I began to learn about this "relationship with Jesus" concept. Over the next 10-15 years, God was in my life. He went before me. He protected me FROM me!! God has had me in the palm of His hand always. For the last 25 years, I have acknowledged what a wonderful place that is!!

Personal Information:

My husband and I have a wonderful love story! My mother used to say that Oprah should have us on her show. Art and I were married in October of 1992. We have two grown children and a daugher- and son-in-law! Both of our children are Phoenix Christian graduates. We are enjoying family life with two adult children and their spouses. Life verse: "Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life." (Proverbs 4:23)
