Becky Portillo

Early Childhood Executive Assistant


I've been in the DFW area all my life. My family settled down here when I was in 2nd grade. After graduation, I moved to Austin, where I worked in the travel industry. It was a lot of fun back then. Those were my first experiences with traveling, and I loved them! I met my husband when I was 19, and we have been together for 33 years. We have two daughters ages 21 & 25. They are both CCA graduates. My oldest went to College in Nashville and stayed there to marry the love of her life and work in the music industry. My youngest is currently a senior, and in the Master's program majoring in Finance at Texas A&M. I was able to stay home with my girls when they were young and came back to work when my youngest started Pre-K here at CCA. This year begins my 18th year working at CCA with our youngest students in the Early Childhood area. I love this age and all their sweet unquestionable love for Jesus!
