I attended San Jose State University and studied Business Marketing and Communication. In my early 20’s I was led into an awesome position with a corporate incentive and meeting planning company. I worked within that organization for 18 years, moving from a temporary position to Vice-President. As a corporate meeting planner I had the opportunity to apply my skills in marketing, planning, organization, and project development. I joined the team at SJCS in July of 2006 and enjoy developing and sharing my character with teachers, parents and students.
I am a native San Jose, Californian. My husband, Bruce and I have been married since 1994, and we have two wonderful children, Shelby and Dwyer. Shelby attends Montanta State University (Go Bobcats!) and Dwyer attends Valley Christian High School. My three sisters and one brother and their spouses and children are an amazing foundation for our great family. We spend as much time as possible together. I enjoy cooking for friends and family and spending time outside. Winter activities are my favorite, with downhill skiing at the top of my list. Camping in the summer would be my first choice activity. As a family we worship at Menlo Church San Jose where I serve in Children’s Ministries as a creative communicator.
Christian Philosophy of Education
As the Director of Community Development, I feel it is my role to encourage God’s love and provision through hospitality. In Romans 12:12 it reads, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Additionally, I desire to encourage each family to find their spiritual gifts and share them with our community. SJCS is amazing. I love the dedication of the staff, the beauty of the campus and the dedication to God’s kingdom that I experience each day. God calls each of us to be a part of a community of believers. I want to make SJCS a place where it is comfortable for parents, students and staff to do just that.
