Meet Our Staff

Julie Hendrickson

Preschool Director

My hearts deepest desire is to share and show the love of Christ with the children and families at LifeBridge Preschool. I believe that by laying a solid foundation of security and significance at a young age, children can move through this life with confidence knowing that they are of great worth. My journey in the field of early education started at Palomar College then moved on to California State University Fullerton where I graduated with a BS in Child Development. Over the past 26 years I have been blessed to teach in several different preschools, manage a construction office while raising my daughter, and lead the Sunday School Ministry at my church in Aguanga. My life is full and my joy overflows as the Lord has graced me with an amazing daughter, the sweetest grandson, incredible friends, and a crazy love for long distance running! As the Director of LifeBridge Preschool I invite you to visit our school…it’s a wonderful, warm place!

Sandy Watters

Financial Manager

Hi, I am Sandy and I have enjoyed working at LifeBridge Preschool for over 14 years partnering with the Director to make our school run smooth and be the best. It is also my privilege to be a member of LifeBridge Church, enjoying my involvement with the worship team and woman’s ministries. My husband and son are avid golfers, it has been amazing to travel to Hong Kong and Germany with each of them and my beautiful daughter in law. At home I enjoy time with my grandson Nash, my dog Jewel, my grand-dog, Baiden and spending time with family. A gift for song and strong family blesses my heart. You may hear me from the office singing out my duties and filling the room with belly laughs, stop in anytime!

Sydne Acton


I have an AA in Liberal Arts from Mt. San Jacinto College and am currently in the process of getting my BS in Psychology/Christian Counseling from Liberty University. I love sunflowers, strong coffee, playing guitar, being outdoors, and spending quality time with friends and family. I believe in making learning fun by incorporating stimulating music and hands-on experience with a smile on my face. My goal is to make each child feel at home, loved, and understood (with maybe a little silliness in between). But most of all, I want each child to walk in light, love, and true understanding of their worth to our Heavenly Father. “Let you light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is heaven.” Matthew 5:16

I am so excited to be here at LifeBridge Preschool! I’ve been a pre-K teacher for 6 years after graduating with a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from San Diego Christian College. I absolutely love this age group as they are eager to learn about the world around them. My husband and I have been married for 5 years and are blessed with a miracle daughter who is now 4! We enjoy hiking, cooking, swimming, and riding bikes together as a family.

Stacie Atkinson


It is such a joy for me to bring smiles to young children’s faces! I have been a teacher at LifeBridge for over 9 years which has enriched my life. One of my greatest rewards is helping children to love their school experience. My students are family to me and I love greeting them each morning with open arms for a big hug. Children are so fantastic, each with a bright and unique personality and I hope to celebrate that individuality through my teaching. God has blessed me through my students, strong connections with families, and my staff family here at LifeBridge; I am very thankful! Outside of work I’m very active with my church family, enjoy cheering on the Padres, and watching NASCAR.

Nastassia Provencio


I’m excited and blessed to be a part of this wonderful school family and equally as blessed to be a part of your child’s educational journey! I have been teaching for over 10 years, currently hold a teacher permit and continue my child development education by taking extra course and attending workshops. My goal is to work with children in developing and cultivating a desire to learn academically and grow spiritually. I’m a wife and mother of three beautiful children who keep me busy by spending most of my days at an ice rink where we all play hockey!

Becky Cummings


I have enjoyed working in early childhood education for over 18 years! As a teacher I love sharing about God and His creation with children emphasizing bugs and “creepy crawlies”. You may hear me referred to as the bug lady by my co-workers. I love to bring lessons to life through songs and hands-on lessons. When I am not working I can be found sewing, reading, gardening, or baking. As a mother of four, I love seeing and being a part of the growth and development of children. My student’s year begins with a lesson on each child’s name and why each name begins with a capital letter. By the end of the year my students know with confidence that the reason for the capital letter is because it is special and important, just like them! When children leave my class I want them to hold this lesson close to their heart so they move forward with confidence in themselves and hope for the future.

Silah Bustos


My life has been dedicated to teaching for over 12 years. I graduated in the Philippines with a degree in Education with a major in science and health. My desire is to provide education and spiritual growth in the classroom and on the playground giving ample opportunity for exploring through hands-on activities. Celebrating who God made us to be while getting “icky and sticky” through science, art, and sports is my motto. I hope to lead children to God, He is our best friend, He answers prayer, and He has each of us in the palm of His hand. Through His example, I want to teach children to be kind, love one another, and love themselves. I’m married to a wonderful man and have an amazingly sweet dog name Noba!

Ginny Murray


I am honored and excited to be a part of LifeBridge Preschool! My journey as a teacher began in 2006 when I graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Since moving from Texas to San Diego in 2016 our family has been welcomed with open arms by the surrounding communities. My husband Brian is a Chief Petty Officer serving in the Navy. We have 5 daughters who attend school in RB while our little 2 year old is enrolled in Mrs. Sarah’s class at LifeBridge. Our girls love being part of their soccer, cheerleading, and swim teams. In my free time I love to run/workout and spend my time with my beautiful family at the surrounding beaches.

Sarah Medina


I love everything about working with little people! It’s my passion to be able to help my students learn and master new, meaningful life skills that will lay the foundation for their education, independence, and love for the Lord. Outside of work I enjoy going on adventures in nature with my husband and dog. My favorite things in life are the Little Mermaid, dancing to all types of music and never ending cups of coffee!

Linda Eldreth


Hello! My name is Linda Eldreth but I am affectionately known at the preschool as “Little Linda.” I have had the privilege of working at this amazing school for the past 14 years. It has been such a blessing to serve and get to know so many of the awesome families and staff. I have been married for the past 30 years and we have two beautiful grown children whom I love spending time with. Worshiping with church family, running and other sports bring even more excitement to my life. I also enjoy playing Fantasy Football in a family league where I am the reigning champ! I absolutely love working with children and feel so blessed that God has placed me where I am today!

Linda Tillotson


Each morning when I wake, I thank God for another day of life; another day to be with God’s beautiful children at LifeBridge Preschool to share His love for one another. My position at LifeBridge is the playground coordinator, teacher, and teacher’s aide. I set-up activities for the children to play and explore for their physical development during outside time including t-ball, soccer, jump rope, and balance beam. I was born and raised here in San Diego, California, am a mother of four children, and eight beautiful grandchildren. I like going to the beach, hiking, Dixon Lake, mountains; enjoying God’s beautiful world. Reading, cooking, knitting, visiting my family near and far. The Lord is my joy!
