Ms. Bernhard earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in French education with high distinction from Arizona State University in 1969, where she was named to Who's Who among Students in American Colleges and Universities. She completed a Master of Divinity degree in 1981 and a Master of Theology in missiology in 1997 from Fuller Theological Seminary. She has notably been recognized in Outstanding Young Women in America.

A celebrated educator of more than forty years, Ms. Bernhard began teaching French and English at First Baptist Christian School in North Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1972.

Inspired by her desire to share the Christian faith, Ms. Bernhard attributes her success to the support of friends and family.
