Vice President for Finance and Operations
Dawn Dirksen is the director of finance and operations for Providence Christian College. She is responsible for the financial and business operations of the college. “I am thrilled to have been joined by many other staff members and we truly are a ‘family in Christ’ who are fully committed to the vision that is Providence Christian College,” she says.
Mrs. Dirksen holds the distinction of being the very first Providence employee, hired as an administrative assistant by the Board of Directors in 2003 and charged with establishing administrative offices for the developing college. As the college grew, her responsibilities grew as well and she was given her current title.
Born and raised in Southern California, Mrs. Dirksen can appreciate all that it has to offer. She attended Coleman College in La Mesa, California and Long Beach State in Long Beach, California receiving a B.S. degree in computer information science. She holds an MBA from the Drucker School of Finance at Claremont Graduate University. Prior to working for Providence she worked part-time and focused on raising her three children. She feels blessed to have a wonderful, supportive husband, Mark, who is also her best friend. Their three children are Danielle (’15), Christian, and Rebekah.
