MANDI LaCHAPELLE

Bookkeeper / Receptionist

She is married with 2 boys and wears many "hats" in our office.  She functions as the communications hub for our church.  She is the warm smile that greets everyone that walks in the door and the one that keeps the gears turning.  Mandi is often pulled in several directions at the same time.  Although she is often knee deep in numbers, she also has the God given gift to make people feel valuable.  Mandi is an invaluable asset to Community Alliance Church.
