Bonjour! I am Lissette Jenkins. I am married to Daniel Jenkins and we are parents to Sofia (4th grade) and Hudson (Kinder).

I like a challenge so this is my second year chairing the auction! I am also a board member on the PTA so say hi if you see me on campus. I love all things food, travel, cocktails, art, and music so this year's theme is a dream!

My husband, Oliver, and I have 4 kids at RCE. Antonia (5th), Valentina and Nicolas (2nd) and finally Francesca (1st). We love this tight knit community that makes parenting and learning so much fun. I have had the opportunity to spend many hours at the school helping with various activities and have witnessed first-hand all the love and attention these kids receive. So excited to help raise money for our school while also making memories with friends!

Hi RCE. My name is Catherine Henry, and I have a 5th grade boy, William, and a 2nd grade girl, Grace. We just moved back to RCE after spending the last two and a half years in Pittsburgh, PA. My husband, Mike, is in oil and gas, so we have moved quite a bit. We are so excited to be back and look forward to meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones. We are looking forward to a great auction!
I am thrilled to participate as the co-chair for the 2023 RCE Auction decor team! My name is Celeste Rudolph and I am married to a local prince, Tygue Rudolph (he is going to “love” having this published). My husband and I have three children at RCE (Jaxon-8, Isabella-6, and Victoria-5), two kitty-cats (Buddy and Shadow), and two of those frogs from Learning Express Toys.
I spent over a decade in Corporate America, as a civil engineer and project manager for one of North America's leading energy infrastructure companies, before retiring in 2014 for the joys (and terrors) of managing a household. During my time in the business world, I offset the mundane atmosphere with my expressive wardrobe, hair, and makeup. Now, when I’m not busy with family, I enjoy interior design and décor, Pilates, baking, gardening, time with my sisters, and caring for animals.
Hi! I'm Gaby Morales. My husband, Carlos and I, along with our boys, Carlos (2nd) and Alex (Kinder) have been in the neighborhood since 2017. I left my job as a CPA to become a full time mom when my eldest was born and I love being involved in our school and community! I look forward to being part of the auction committee and helping plan some fun parties!
Hi I'm Jessi! I have been married to Wes for 13 years and we have two awesome daughters - Emily (4th grade) and Kate (2nd grade). We have lived in the neighborhood since 2018 and have enjoyed making new friends, getting involved in the community and going to fun auction parties and on great auction trips!

We moved to Houston in July 2018, relocating from Lincoln, England. We were excited for a new adventure - not knowing much about what was in store for us but ready to jump in all the same. We have not been dissapointed! Life has been fun (except for the mosquitos) - between sports, socialising, exploring the Texas highlights and neighbouring States. Both kids have come up through the RCE ranks - Emily is now is 4th and Oliver in 3rd. RCE has provided such a warm and welcoming environment. Being part of the Auction team will be a great way to help give back - and to party!
Hi! I'm Kristi Bell. I'm married to Bobby Bell and we have two daughters, Kayden in 4th and Blakely in 1st. We are still pretty new to RCE and this is my first year helping with the auction. We have loved joining this community and being a part of RCE. Normally you can find me on the tennis court or watching my girls play sports! When we do have a free weekend from sports I love to explore new places or stay home and enjoy on of Bobby's wine pairing dinners! I am really looking forward to this year's auction!
