Meet the team
Chairman of the board
My name is John Lashbrook and I’m the CEO of Hope School Mental Health. I’m a lifelong advocate for mental health care and a champion of all those who struggle with mental health challenges. If you’re lost and in need of help, if you’re on a search for spiritual solutions, or if you just need someone to talk to – you’ve come to the right place. We invite you to join us on this journey toward health and walk with us, together, into the light of a new day.
I am Joel Stock and I am in charge of Website Management, Forum Administration, and Technical Support for Hope School Mental Health. I grew up in a musical family in the dusty agricultural south of Pakistan and studied Physics and Biblical Theology at Biola University. My experience in helping a close family member through difficult mental health struggles has given me a passion for those who need support in this way, and so I am honored to be a part of this team!
I am Kenedy Lucas and I am the head Life Coach with Hope School Mental Health. I grew up in Los Angeles, California near downtown where I was exposed to different communities and cultures. I became involved with my community at a young age and followed my mom’s footsteps in advocating for people’s rights. This motivated me to get a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of California, Merced, to help people with mental health needs and become a certified life coach to help people achieve their goals.
Vice President and Secretary
I am Charles Talley. I am Secretary for Hope School Mental Health and I am in charge of recruitment and marketing. I have developed a great desire to help and serve people, having come from the restaurant industry. I am from Las Vegas and have seen a lot of mental health issues and I am just doing my part to lend a helping hand.
Grant Writer and Donor Development Consultant
My name is Chanell, and I am the Grant Writer and Donor Development Consultant for Hope School Mental Health. As an advocate for mental health education in the church and in society at large, I am passionate about being a part of Hope School’s mission. I hold a BA in Biblical Studies from Ozark Christian College and a Certificate in Grant Writing from San Diego State University. Since 2016, I have worked in the nonprofit sector in a variety of roles, including fundraising coordinator, parenting mentor, children’s teacher, donor relations developer, grant writer, and everything in-between! My goal is to help nonprofit organizations overcome financial obstacles so they can grow and thrive.
