CEN Administration Deputy
Current Role: CEN Administration Deputy
Audrey brings her experience in Education and Educational Administration to the ministry of the Christian Emergency Network in her role as National Administration Deputy. From the very beginning of her career as a school principal she was inspired to focus on school emergency preparedness while also addressing student learning and the professional development of teachers and staff.
Audrey joined the national team of the Christian Emergency Network and sees the hand of the Lord in preparing her for equipping Christians to be ready in crisis large and small with the Hope of Jesus in these uncertain times. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, she moved to Michigan where she earned a Master’s degree in K-12 Curriculum from Eastern Michigan University and then an Education Specialist degree in K-12 Administration from Michigan State University. She began her career in the classroom in 1982 and enjoyed teaching before moving into Administration. She also served as an Educational Consultant and a Gifted/Talented Director. Then, after 17 years of teaching and 13 years as an Elementary and High School Principal, she was employed as a Consultant for “failing schools” through the Michigan Department of Education and Michigan State University. She has served as an Adjunct Professor at Spring Arbor University, teaching classes on Multiple Intelligence Theory and Gifted Education. In her role as CEN Administration Deputy Audrey provides a unique and seasoned perspective on school and church safety education. She currently serves on a Church Safety Security Team in Jackson, MI providing her practical knowledge in local church, city, and national Christian emergency response. After listening closely to the needs of Christian educators for 34 years and being gripped by the heartache of the many school security incidents nationwide, Audrey is developing a much-needed training for Christian schools in preparing for and responding to security incidents and emergencies. “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 KJV
