Fr. Larry Beck
Fr. Larry Beck is the second of two sons of Lawrence and the late Mildred Beck. Born in 1959, he was reared in Brea, Calif. in north Orange County and attended the parochial school of his home parish of St. Angela Merici. After graduating from the local public high school in 1977, he began his college studies at Cal State Fullerton and then transferred to and graduated in 1982 from the University of Southern California with a degree in Civil Engineering.
During these years he began discerning the call to priesthood and entered St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo. He was ordained in 1988 for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and transferred in 2004 to the Diocese of Sacramento. He has served as administrator of the parishes of St. John, Quincy and Our Lady of the Snows, Lake Almanor, and then in 2011 was appointed pastor of St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Amador County.

Vice Principal / 2nd Grade Teacher
Michelle Heuerman was born at Fort Benning, Georgia and lived in several states before settling in Southern California during high school. She received her B.A. and California Teaching Credential from the University of California, Riverside, and spent several years teaching the second grade at St. Lawrence Martyr School in Redondo Beach.

She feels truly blessed to have been called and welcomed into the Holy Trinity Parish community as the second grade teacher.
“As a Catholic educator, I always strive to instill in my students a desire to do their best, develop a lifelong love of learning, become positive role-models, and ultimately achieve their full potential as productive citizens and disciples of Christ.”

Mr. Robert Sabino
Director of Music Ministry
Rob Sabino was born and bred in the Bronx, New York. His early education was at St Philip Neri elementary school, Fordham Prep (Jesuit) and All Hallows (Irish Christian Brothers) high schools. He majored in music education at Lehman and Hunter colleges in New York City but did not go directly into teaching. That happened nineteen years later. He recorded and toured with many artists including Simon and Garfunkel, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger and many others until 1992 when he settled down in Grass Valley with his wife Debra and her three children, Cory, Rebecca and Peter. They also have twins born in 1997, Robert and Maria Luisa. From 1993 until 1999 he taught and was the music director at St. Joseph parish in Auburn.
Rob then was the organist and music director at the Church of St Martin in Davis and Grace Church (Episcopal) in Fairfield where his wife is the Rector. He was appointed the parish director of music ministries at Holy Trinity in 2008. Of Holy Trinity, Rob says, "I am truly blessed to be at a church and school where service, prayer and worship are so intertwined in the fabric of the congregation and all of the staff. It also doesn’t hurt that there is an abundance of musical talent up here on the hill!" The Warwick-Sabino’s live in Cameron Park.

Mrs. Cheryl Tallia
1st Grade Teacher
I am delighted to serve at Holy Trinity School as the First Grade Teacher. I joined the school ministry in 2003, when the school opened. I attended CSU, Sacramento where I received a B.S in Business Administration/Finance, my teaching credential and a graduate degree in Library Media Services.
Prior to joining the teaching team at Holy Trinity, I worked for 5 years at St. John’s Notre Dame School in Folsom. I also taught religious education for over six years at St. John’s parish. I have a strong belief in the value of Catholic education; my son Matthew attended St. John Notre Dame, then went on to high school at Jesuit and college at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
My philosophy of education is simple: I believe the role of the teacher is not only to provide knowledge for students, but also to nurture students to grow both in and out of the classroom.

Mrs. Julie Shelnutt
Middle School ELA/6th Faith Formation
My name is Julie Shelnutt. I was born and raised in the Bay Area where I received an excellent Catholic education at Saint John the Baptist in San Lorenzo and Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward. Upon graduation I completed the course work to receive an AA Degree in Graphic Design and then gained admission to California State University East Bay in their Fine Arts Department. While at the University, I received a BA in Fine Arts, a multiple subject credential in elementary education, and a single subject credential in Art.
After college I worked in public education at Canyon Middle School, in Castro Valley teaching sixth grade language arts, history and art. I taught for the next 10 years until the birth of our first child. My husband’s job transferred him to the Sacramento Area in 1997 where we settled in El Dorado Hills. From 2004-2006 I was fortunate to be on the staff of Holy Trinity School and I am thrilled to be back. Catholic education has given me a wonderful foundation and it is my honor to be part of such a gifted staff and community.

Mrs. Adrienne Fuller
I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I attended St. Leander's Catholic School in San Leandro and graduated from Chabot College in Hayward.
My wonderful husband and I were married in 1982 and we moved to Placerville in 1989. We have four amazing children, two girls and two boys. Our eldest child is attending Folsom Lake College, she is studying to be a physical therapist. I have another daughter studying at UC Irvine, majoring in Dance and Psych. My Son is attending San Jose State and is majoring in Bio Med Engineering and last but not least my youngest son is attending Union Mine High School.
I am bilingual - my other language being Spanish but I also speak some French. I have been a Third Order Carmelite for over 10 years now; so the Eucharist, the Scriptures and the Liturgy of the Hours are all a major focus for me along with silence and solitude. The Lay Carmelites are contemplatives living and seeking a prayerful presence in a modern world.
