Education, Experience and Background:
I have called Chaparral home since my husband and I moved here in 1993. My background is education, having taught in the public school system for 15 years. I have earned a BS and MA in Elementary Education and a MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary. For the last 12 years I have ministered along the Chaparral staff serving in missions, Christian education, and pastoral care. I am excited to come on board as the Director of Schools, knowing we have an incredible team of teachers and families. Ministering to families is one of my passions. These are formative years for parents and learners and we learn and grow together.

What makes CCPK special?
Chaparral has always been a welcoming and warm place for families. My own children thrived in the preschool program, giving them a strong foundation, a sense of curiosity, and the desire to learn. We focus on the individual learner, meeting them where they are in their growth and development, while instilling within them a love and understanding of God’s abundant presence in the every day.
