Administrative Team
School Directors - Renee VanMaren, Jen Niemi and Melody Bingham

Mrs. VanMaren has been with VCA since 2000. She is part of our administration team, overseeing the roles of preschool director, athletic director, H.R., and finance support. She has an associate degree in early education with a certification in administration from Napa Valley College. She has been married for 31 years to her husband Mike and, through the grace of God, has raised three amazing adult children. She loves spending time with her two adorable twin grandsons, vacationing with family, attending and watching sporting events, being on her boat at Lake Tahoe, and eating music and good food. She is a fan of VCA Lions, The Warriors, and the 49ers. Her favorite thing about VCA is when teachers come alongside one another and support our students with more than just academics.

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28

Together, they enjoy spending time with their family and traveling.
