With each month’s newsletter, we feature two members of our wonderful records or counseling team members here at HomeLife so that you can get to know them! This month, we would like to introduce you to Counseling Team Support, Calente Tapp, and Records Team Member Christy Gatti.
Calente Tapp has worked for HomeLife since 2009. She helps the counseling team by answering and dispersing incoming emails. Calente and her husband have been homeschooling for 13 years.
Calente enjoys spending her free time riding horses with family and friends. In addition to homeschooling her own family, she spent 10 years teaching a Science Coop in her community. She says her favorite part of working at HomeLife is “encouraging home school families to move beyond their fears and work through an education plan specific to their student’s needs and guiding families through this wonderful journey of educating their children.”
Christy Gatti started at HomeLife in 2013 as our receptionist and is currently transitioning to the records
team. She and her husband, Chris, have 4 children: one homeschool graduate, one high school, one middle school, and one elementary student, all HomeLife students. They will celebrate their 22nd anniversary this year.
The Gatti family is very active at Gospel Light Baptist Church. Christy also enjoys making jewelry and supporting her daughter’s activity with horses. Christy says of her job at HomeLife:
I LOVE my job because I don’t consider it a job. Each day is a new opportunity for me to help make a difference in the lives of families just beginning their home schooling journey to helping a veteran family with getting the process going of graduating their student. I also love the fact that I can come into the office and share a burden, prayer request, or praise with fellow Christians. There is nothing like the feeling of working in a Christ-honoring environment.
