Tell us about yourself
I grew up in Clark, New Jersey. I just recently moved back to NJ from TN where my husband, Joseph and I worked for a residential facility for troubled youth. I love soccer, kayaking, playing games, and traveling and I have a Great Dane named Maverick.
Tell us the story of how God brought you to EC
While living in Tennessee, my mother-in-law, Sandra De Marco, asked us several times to apply for the EC boarding house but we never really felt peace from the Lord. Then one day she asked and we just felt peace all over it. The Lord even confirmed it through my family members who once lived in NJ but had moved out. She then suggested I apply to work at EC. I applied and the Lord opened the doors for me to become the second grade para and after care director.
What sets EC apart?
I have just started but it already has been amazing. I have felt extremely welcomed by the teachers who I work alongside with. They always bring God into their classrooms, whether it is through teaching about him, worshiping, or even praying. They always include him. As for the students it is incredible to watch them be able to answer the questions the teachers ask about God and have such a foundation in biblical knowledge.
