Marla Finley

Marla Finley, a recent addition to the Highland Oaks staff, is the Children’s Minister, which means she gets to work with children from birth to 5th grade and their families. She is married to Trey and they have two sons Caden and Grant.  The Finley family has been an integral part of the Highland Oaks family since 2007.

Marla has psychology degrees from Harding (undergrad) and ACU (Masters).  She has worked professionally as a child therapist and a business woman.  She feels like her extensive world travels & mission trips along with minors in Bible in Spanish have prepared her to dive into this new role.  She continues to teach Spanish to preschoolers at Little Acorns, which is the preschool housed within Highland Oaks.

She desires to be an encouraging connector and help to create an even wider welcoming presence for all members and guests of Highland Oaks. She loves to experience new restaurants with her husband, go on adventures with her boys and walk her dog Frodo.  Come find her in the Children’s Wing.

She’d love to meet you and your family!
