Sydney Seligman, Administrator
Sydney Seligman serves as the Parish Administrator at Christ the Redeemer. Originally from Springdale, Arkansas, she moved to Norfolk in 2013 to pursue a Master’s degree in Education at Regent University. Along with Regent, she holds a degree from the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs!). Prior to being a church secretary, Sydney was an ESL teacher for adults and international students, and involved in teacher preparation programs, working at Norfolk Public Schools, Regent University, and Old Dominion University. The career change came after wanting to spend more time with her 1 year-old son, John. Working at the church has allowed Sydney to spend more time with family, since she is able to bring John to work with her, as well as use her administrative experience and love for people to serve the wonderful congregation at CtR. Sydney, her husband Justin, and little John currently reside in the Park Place area of Norfolk.
