  • Chris Berry

    Board Member

    I am a native southern boy from Louisiana that has lived in the Seattle area since 1999. I am married to my beautiful wife of 15 years, Claire, and we have incredible kids - Amelia and Simon. I currently work in the accounting profession as the Managing Director of Accounting & Air Group Controller at Seattle's favorite airline - Alaska Airlines - and have been there since 2005. I am an elder and the Treasurer for LifeWay Church. I came to know Jesus at an early age and was blessed to grow up in a home with a solid Christian family that showed me what it means to be a follower of our Savior. Every day I am amazed at his work in my life and the life of others around me. 

  • Cindy Steedman

    Board Member

    My name is Cindy Steedman and I am a retired Spanish instructor. I have two adult sons and I live in Puyallup with my husband of 28 years. Missions and non-profit organizations have been an active part of my adult life. My primary involvement is usually as an interpreter for groups traveling to Mexico. As a metastatic breast cancer survivor, I truly understand the importance of living a quality life with people I care about. I am blessed to have the time to serve in a volunteer capacity for causes that make a difference in people's lives. I met Joel Carver, the director of Paradosi Ballet Company on a mission trip to France four years ago. I was impressed with his vision to bring a Christian ballet troupe there to perform. Since then, my husband and I have supported and watched the beautiful exhibitions orchestrated and choreographed by his wife, Tennille. It's been my privilege to serve on the Paradosi board for the past year.
