Hi North Creek Presbyterian, my name is Kcristell Peña.

I am very excited to be on staff as the Administrative Manager. I re-dedicated my life to Jesus at 18 after encountering his restoration and love after a life-altering loss. Through the love and support of a church community, I found hope again, and that is why I accepted this role at NCPC; I look forward to working with the NCPC leadership and Volunteers in doing the Lord’s work in this community!

During my interview process, I enjoyed meeting with a few members of the Session of Elders and hearing about what they loved about this community. Then, I had the opportunity to come in for a second interview with more Elders and Pastor Kurt and learned more about the Administrative Manager Position. I knew then that my experience aligned with the job description provided by the NCPC Session of Elders.

All my professional experience has been in administrative-type work. My previous role was as a Payroll Specialist, and I worked on all things Employee Benefits. Prior to that, I did sales support, employee leadership, training, and social media management. I look forward to bringing that experience to NCPC and collaborating with Pastor Kurt, the Elders, and the Volunteers carrying out the administrative needs.

I graduated from Northwest University in 2018, and one day, I hope to pursue a master’s degree in school counseling. In my spare time, you may find my husband, Rony and I are at a coffee shop, most likely talking about our dogs Bruno, (2-year-old Golden Retriever) and Olivia (1-year-old Golden Doodle). If not at a coffee shop, we are eating Central American food at our favorite Restaurant: La Cabaña, in Seattle, where we get a bite of the homemade food that we both grew up eating! My family emigrated to Washington from Honduras and Rony’s from Nicaragua!

This is a little about me. I look forward to joining one of your services in the next few weeks or meeting some of you as you visit the church office during the week.

In Christ,

Kcristell Peña.
