Sandee Almaas | Accounting Consultant
Accounting Degree, Seattle Pacific University
MBA, City University
I have been with Valley Christian School since…. well, since its founding, being a lifelong member of New Day Christian Fellowship (formerly Auburn Free Methodist Church), which established the school in 1977 with two teachers, one of whom also acted as principal. My father was the first VCS Chairman of the Board, who passed the baton to my husband for several years.
I have an undergraduate accounting degree from Seattle Pacific University and my MBA from City University. Following college, I became a certified public accountant and have 36 years of experience working in public accounting, as well as in industry and non-profits. A few years ago, I felt a clear call from the Lord to use my education, training, and experience to benefit His Kingdom through working part-time for both NDCF and VCS. I provide oversight for financial operations and prepare the monthly financial reports for the Board.
Larry and I sent all three of our children to Valley Christian School. The kids have gone on to become a master teacher, Marine and businessman, and administrative professional. All five of us give credit to VCS for helping establishing a strong faith foundation, establishing a high standard of performance, and a host of other "soft skills" that have become crucial life skills.
In my "spare" time, I am daily grandma to our two granddaughters, ages 6 and 4, who attend Valley Christian. I love traveling often with my husband, reading, gardening, singing, and working in children’s ministries. I am honored and privileged to work with the office staff and Board of Valley Christian School. They are people of integrity who are dedicated to our Lord and the children of VCS.
