meet the Staff
Community Presbyterian Church is currently seeking to hire a full time Senior Pastor/Head of Staff. Please see our Employment Opportunity page for additional information.
In July of 2002 my husband Robert and I were married and had decided we needed to find a church to attend together. We tried several services locally and then decided to try CPC as I had fond memories of attending here as a teenager. What we found was God at work, we soon became members, and we were Home. My husband went to be with the Lord several years ago and I will always treasure our time together at CPC. How I was lifted by the outpouring of love this beautiful church shared. God and this amazing congregation got me through the darkest hour by sharing the pure love of Christ. I never felt alone because of these brothers and sisters in Christ. I am the mother of 3 adult children, Victoria, James and Haven who between them have blessed me with 7 grandchildren ages from 3 to 27. I share my home with younger sister Jenny, my 16 year old granddaughter Morgan and our 3 dogs Buster, Tiger and Maizie. I enjoy crafts and crocheting and my passion is singing with our Worship Team sharing the music and the Good News. I am humbled and grateful to be a part of this ministry staff and being allowed to serve our Lord and this congregation.
Director of presbyterian enrichment preschool (pep)
My first time coming through the doors of PEP school, I was a high school student in an early childhood education class assigned to do an observation in a preschool classroom. After I was married and had children of my own, I enrolled my son in PEP school while I worked jobs in an elementary school program called Just For Kids and as a noon duty supervisor. When my second child was born, I decided to get my Associate's Degree in early childhood education at Solano College and when my daughter started school, I did too, right here at PEP school! I was a PEP teacher until our previous director retired. I loved our PEP school and didn't want it to change, so I applied for the position and became Director in August of 2001. When it was time for my daughter to move on to kindergarten, she didn't understand why I wasn't either. Every year when our children go on to kindergarten, I am so happy for them, but I will stay in Preschool:) I am just not ready to move on!
Director of Mother's Day out
I've been in this area my whole life having grown up in Davis and attending the Heald Business College in Sacramento, where I graduated with a degree in Business in 1976. I have been involved in early childhood education ministries since 1989 and earned my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education from Solano Community College. I'm married to Marty, and we have four adult children and 8 (and counting) grandchildren!
