Please tell us about yourself
Food is a gift that God provides both for nutrition for our bodies, as well as a form of art to enjoy. I am looking forward to bringing life back into the lunch program for all three campuses through Eagles Cafe. Personally, I currently live in Riverdale with my husband, Chris. We love traveling as much as we can together.
How did God bring you to work at EC?
After growing up within EC, I always thought about working here one day, but there was no obvious job fit for me. I landed a job teaching culinary for four years, so I got the public school teaching experience, which confirmed I did not want to be a teacher forever. Meanwhile, the cafeteria at EC had been empty for some years, and a staff member reached out to me, asking if I would consider running the food service program. After many years of prayer and patience, it felt like God hand-crafted this new position at EC for me. I am extremely thankful for this opportunity to serve the community that raised me, and to help raise the future generations of disciples.
What sets EC apart?
The Christ-like attitude of the staff is unlike any other organization I have worked for. Everyone’s passion and dedication to Christian education is inspiring. They are doing commendable work for our students in the challenging, worldly culture we live in.
