I actually had never heard of CEF until I moved from Southern California to Oregon in 2007. I volunteered in a Good News Club a couple of years later and was surprised to learn that we could teach children about the Lord in a public school setting! I began working part time for CEF in Jackson County, Oregon in May of 2016 after a career in education and publishing.

Working with children has been a part of my life since I was a teenager when I began teaching Sunday school. Then I went to college to become a teacher and taught at a Christian elementary school for 10 years. I also served as a director in Awana for nearly 20 years.

My greatest joy in working for CEF is making sure our amazing volunteers have what they need to minister on the front lines to the children of Jackson County.
