Christian Preschools Administrator

Married to my supportive, loving husband, Mike, for 52 years. We have 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I have always loved children. When I first began working at the preschool, the goal was to work part-time and provide playmates for our 2 year old son. Almost immediately, God laid it on my heart to pursue the education necessary to achieve a leadership role in the preschool. Little did I know what an amazing blessing God had planned for me. God continues to bless me as I work with the OCSBA to open preschools and teach children the Word of God.
