Ilene Silva & Family

Ilene and her family have been members at Carmichael for 30 years.  Ilene serves in the OASIS Ministry that provides refreshments to members and guests each Sabbath.  Ilene finds it meaningful to be a part of a warm and welcoming Church that consistently reflects the love of Christ.

Since retiring from the State of CA, Ilene has been working at SAA part time, most recently on the annual Alumni Weekend.  As Ilene, Jessica & Nick are Alumnus of SAA, it has been rewarding to reconnect with old friends and make new friendships.

Jessica is a Director for a firm specializing in Prison Reentry Services.  She enjoys working out in her spare time, including Stand Up Paddleboard at nearby Lake Natomas.

Nick is a Nodal Network (Computer) Specialist in the US Army, currently stationed in Tampa, FL.  He is training for a marathon in his free time.

This picture was taken on a trip to visit Nick last Spring at the pier in St. Petersburg.  We all love the CA Coast and try to escape to the beach as often as possible, especially to Carmel and Bodega Bay.  Hiking is also a favorite activity, and visiting Muir Woods is a favorite destination.
