As President of the KAMB Board of Directors, I feel as if I have returned home. Many years ago I was a station operator at KAMB. My shift was from midnight to eight in the morning. I loved it! I did that for about a year. As a financial supporter of KAMB for years, I now realize I can help to make an added impact as a Board member.
I have 3 amazing children, Marcus, Thea and Katie as well as 5 incredible grandchildren. My husband, Roger and I have been married for over 30 years! We enjoy reading, traveling, and kayaking.
In the Turlock School District, I have served as a teacher, Resource Specialist and both Elementary and Junior High school counselor. I love working with parents, students, administration and co-workers to help our students work to their full potential. What an exciting and fulfilling career!
I am a member of Crossroads Church in Turlock and serve as secretary to the Elder Board, choir member, small group ensemble member and sing in duets on a regular basis. I also usher during our contemporary service. I have watched God faithfully at work in my life and feel very blessed.
Hi! My name is Dan Finn and I am the KAMB Board Vice President. I have had the privilege of being associated with the KAMB Board since 1998. My first encounter with KAMB was back in 1971 when I first moved to the Turlock area.
I have seen KAMB evolve over the years from tape recorders to the present digital computers. Our one theme has always been to broadcast hope and encouragement through Christ centered messages and music.
I have spent the past 34 years working in a family business manufacturing agricultural equipment. My lovely wife, Carol, of 40 years has been my constant encourager. We worship at Monte Vista Chapel in Turlock.
Hi, I'm Steve Slocum, the KAMB Board secretary. I am an attorney and I work as a prosecutor for the Merced County District Attorney's Office. I attend First Baptist Church in Merced along with my wife, Katie, and our four children.
I knew about Christ at a young age but it was when I entered law school that I began to really follow the Lord more closely. I believe God has been calling me to be more involved in church and I want to serve others in order that they may come to personally know the saving grace of Jesus.
Hi, my name is Carla Travaille and I am currently serving as the Board treasurer. I have served at KAMB for over 5 years.
My husband Sam and I call Ripon home. We have three lovely daughters, and with their families, four grandies (as I like to call them) and three sons. I am employed by the Postal Service as a rural letter carrier in Escalon. We farm almonds and live on a small vineyard. Our family enjoys spending time in the outdoors, especially at the coast.
I am a country girl at heart, enjoying gardening, chicken raising and long walks through the surrounding orchards. We are also involved in a small group bible study and attend Calvary Chapel in Modesto.
Christian radio has had a profound impact on myself and my family over the years. Being a Board member is a great opportunity to serve the community and the Lord. My prayer is that KAMB will continue to bring hope and the knowledge of Jesus Christ to a world that so desperately needs it.
Hi! I am Laurie Byer, a board member at KAMB. I moved to California with my husband, Craig, over 9 years ago from Minnesota and thought we would have trouble finding a replacement for the Northwestern College Christian radio station that was part of our lives. When we found KAMB, we knew we were blessed!
Craig and I have two grown children and three granddaughters. I am the CFO of a central valley industrial electrical company. My daughter and I are AARP/VITA tax volunteers.
I am one of many long-distance commuters and am so grateful to have Celebration Radio in the car with me, lifting me up, helping me pray and pointing me toward a relationship with the Lord. I am the worship leader at Wildwood Chapel in Greeley Hill, so music is an integral part of my life. Music opens a door to the hearts and minds of people and the music on KAMB shares the encouraging and uplifting message of God's Word.
I moved to Mariposa a few years ago, and was thrilled to find KAMB on the radio because I understand the impact of positive music and typically have it playing in the office, the car, and the garage. I’m excited for the opportunity to serve the ministry as a board member.
My amazing wife Dawn and I are both originally from Colorado. We moved around quite a bit during my rewarding 20 year career in the U.S. Coast Guard, and were led to Mariposa County where I now work in the Public Works Department. Dawn and I have four awesome children, two attending college in Merced. We worship at New Life Christian Fellowship in Bootjack.
