Kerith Schubert - Office Manager
Kerith has been a part of Rosewood for as long as she can remember. When she was a few years old, her family moved to Regina and began attending Rosewood. As she grew up she joined in on some of the ministries that Rosewood has to offer such as Children's ministry and Youth Ministry. She has loved volunteering in other church community events such as the Food Drive and delivering phone books as well.
Kerith's involvement in Rosewood continued even after she went away to university in Edmonton to study Interior Design and later Saskatoon for Fashion Design. Although she was away for the school year, Kerith made sure to come home for the summer to be one of the Summer Interns at our Rosewood Day Camps. For three summers, Kerith turned the church into a tropical getaway, an icy mountain and a cave expedition! In September 2018, Kerith was offered to join the Rosewood team as a full time employee in the Office, and after her many years of involvement and knowing the staff at Rosewood she felt led to join them in ministering to God's Kingdom.

Outside of the classroom, Carol enjoys running, spending time with her husband and baby girl, playing extensive board games, and eating large quantities’ of peanut butter.
