Regina Sodia

Business Administrator

+ About Regina

Regina Sodia grew up in a small hill country town branded as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” Bandera, TX. She loved the small-town life as a child and everything that life had to offer including learning to drive a standard transmission truck on the dirt roads at the age of 8 and swimming in the creek.

She moved to Colorado 25 years ago. She always knew she wanted to live in Colorado after many summer vacations as a child with her family, so in her mid-20’s she packed up a U-Haul truck and never looked back. One of her favorite things about Colorado is the winter weather especially the snow.

She has 23 years accounting and bookkeeping experience and 13 years of that has been with Christ the King. She began this adventure at Christ the King with her daughter who started the Pre School one month prior. Her daughter is now graduating from Bishop Machebeuf High School this year.

She enjoys family time with her daughter, cooking and cheering for the Denver Broncos!
