 Phone:719-599-7250 ext 119

Dione started in the Youth Program as an adult sponsor and then took over as Youth Director in 2002.  Since then she's acted as Youth Director, Youth Communications Director, Co-Youth Director, Interim Youth Director, Youth & Young Adult Ministry Director, and most recently, Faith Formation Director which she shares with Nani Arning. Her new position has shifted to a more multi-generational approach which is perfect for Calvary. 

Dione came to Calvary with 12 years’ experience in corporate and University public relations having gained her BA in Mass Communications with a PR emphasis.  In-between her positions at Calvary she worked in the school system with both preschool and elementary age students so, she's covered all her bases from ages 3-30!

Dione has twin boys and a daughter who are all teenagers and Dione is a busy single mama managing work, kids, and a dog!  For fun, Dione likes to run, read, watch movies, try new places to eat, and laugh…a lot.
