Emily Head

Kids Coordinator - North County Campus

Born and raised in Northern California, Emily trusted Jesus as Lord and Savior at a Billy Graham Crusade in Oakland, CA at the age of 13. Active in Intervarsity Christian Fellowship while attending Cal Poly, she graduated in 1980 with a degree in Business and married Erik in 1981. She worked in Human Resources for Lockheed Martin for a number of years, and then as the Office Manager in the family dental practice until 2016. Grown children include Scott and Carly, parents to Jake and Luke, who live on the Central Coast, and son Matthew, who lives in San Ramon, CA.

Emily loves kids and is passionate about teaching them how much Jesus loves them. Having been active in children's and women's ministry 30+ years, she jumped right into teaching at the GraceSLO campus after she and Erik relocated to the Central Coast in 2016.

Emily now serves as our GraceKids Coordinator for the North County campus where she and her husband Erik attend.
