Caroline Corazza Joins Providence as Director of Development
Providence is pleased to announce that Caroline Corazza has joined the school's advancement team as the director of development.
Caroline comes to Providence after serving six years as a development officer for Young America’s Foundation at the Reagan Ranch. In this role, Caroline hosted thousands of supporters from across the country at President Reagan’s beloved Rancho del Cielo and managed events at the Reagan Ranch Center and Rancho del Cielo. As a development officer, Caroline worked within the Santa Barbara community, as well as throughout the country, building relationships with the Foundation’s generous supporters. Through these important partnerships she was able to help advance freedom on America’s high school and college campuses.
A native of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Caroline graduated from the University of Virginia in 2011 with a bachelor of arts degree in government and a minor in leadership. Inspired by her own challenges as a Christian and conservative on her campus, she was called to a career in development where she could help organizations training young people to be bold voices for truth in academia.
As a development professional, Caroline has been a student of the Institute for Charitable Giving where she has had the privilege of studying under some of the most respected development professionals in the country. She has gained deep appreciation for philanthropy and generosity, and finds great satisfaction in connecting the interests of supporters with opportunities that advance important missions.
Caroline and her husband, Joey Corazza, have been long involved with Santa Barbara Christian School and Providence. Joey attended Santa Barbara Christian School from kindergarten through eighth grade and has frequently spoken on behalf of the school. Joey founded Miramar Group, a real estate management and re-development company, in 2013. Together they are raising two young children, Virginia and Rush, and they look forward to sending them to Providence in the future. The Corazzas are members of Christ Presbyterian Church where Joey serves as a deacon and Caroline as the nursery director.
Caroline is eager to begin her role as development director and enthusiastic about the future of the school.
“I am excited to work alongside the excellent team of leaders and educators at Providence to advance the Kingdom here in Santa Barbara and to provide more families with the opportunity to give their children excellent, Christ-centered educations,” she said.
Emilee Hurlbert, executive assistant to the head of school and the head of upper school, also has joined the advancement team, charged with developing and managing alumni and parent relations. Emilee built the alumni program at Heritage Christian Schools in Bakersfield in her four years there and worked in the alumni and parent relations office at Westmont College for nine years.
Other members of the Providence Advancement Team are Dr. Scott Lisea, head of school; Elaine Rottman, director of marketing and communications; Diane Horvath, director of tuition assistance; Joyce Luy, director of upper school admission; and Angie West, director of preschool and lower school admission.
