The MPCS Executive Council is the key leadership team who helps make the day-to-day decisions in support of fulfilling the MPCS mission. We encourage you to learn more about each member as we feature the various departments weekly.
Title: Chief Development Officer
Education: BA in Psychology, University of Georgia
Number of years in my profession: 22
Professional experience: I did seven years of corporate fundraising for social services/basic needs and have spent 16 years at MPCS. My volunteer work includes Leadership Cobb, Cobb County Prayer Breakfast, Kennesaw Teen Center/Black History Bowl, and The Women's Collective (Atlanta).
Fun fact: I have two new recent obsessions: 1) "Zeke," my three-year-old very smart and adorable rescue pup, and 2) "Jolene" the Jeep, my dream car after 11 years driving a minivan. Aside from my family, these two things are bringing me the most joy these days!
What I'm reading now or favorite book: I was late to the party, but this past summer I read Redeeming Love." Right now, it's probably topping my list of favorite novels.
Connections to MPCS: I started working at MPCS when I was pregnant with my daughter, Ryan, who is a sophomore; then, Hunter, who is now in seventh grade, came along. Praise God they don't know life without MPCS!
What I love most about MPCS: While I truly enjoy the gorgeous setting, campus, and facilities, what I love most are the people and their steadfast commitment to our mission to prepare servant-leaders who honor God, love others, and walk in Truth. Everyone works together toward excellence in everything we do, all for the glory of God.
What I love about my role at the school: I enjoy being in a support role, where it's my job to provide the necessary resources for the faculty and staff to carry out our mission. I also get to see the best side of people (our donors and volunteers) - their selfless, compassionate, grateful, and faithfully generous side.
My hope for MPCS: In the future, I pray MPCS stays razor focused on our mission in all aspects of our programs and that we do so by putting Jesus and His people first in all that we say and do.
