It is with great pleasure that we introduce Jody Matthews to the Sound Christian Academy community as our new Director of Advancement.
Jody comes to Sound Christian with a wealth of knowledge with events and advancement experience.
She has a heart for underserved and vulnerable populations and has worked raising funds for non-profits that include human trafficking, elder abuse and animal rescues.
Having created events and raised funds for several non-profits including The Everett (Wash.) Symphony, Tacoma Community College, Pacific Lutheran University Advancement Department, Music of Remembrance (music from the Holocaust), and various other community organizations, she has raised into the millions of dollars for worthy causes across the state.
“I am very, very excited about the opportunity here at Sound Christian,” Jody said. “I’m eager to build on the fantastic foundation that Sue Ellen (Rush) and the team have created and I’m dedicated to supporting and growing the Advancement Department.”
Jody replaces Sue Ellen Rush, who was the Director of Advancement and Military Services for six years. She and her family are moving out of the area.
