Dee first began serving at Gabriel's House in 2003 as an Assistant Coordinator. She loved the mission and the children, but took a few years off to run her own daycare. She returned to Gabriel's House in 2008 and served in several roles leading up to her promotion as Executive Director in 2015.
As a child, Dee was a victim of sexual abuse that would occur after school which has since fueled her passion into helping keep children safe and show them that they are loved. Her work at Gabriel's House is shown not only through the day to day operations of managing a non profit, but through the hearts of the children who feel more confident, safe, and loved because of her generous spirit and passion for the Gabriel's House Academy program and mission.
Dee and her husband, Nathan, have been married since 2001 and are the proud parents of 3 wonderful children and 2 four legged children.
