Meet the Staff - The Pregnancy Network

The Pregnancy Network is volunteer led, staff supported. That means our Board of Directors (who are all volunteers) lead the organization from the top, and our other volunteers lead in doing ministry on a daily basis. Volunteers are the ones connecting with and serving clients. The role of paid staff members is to support the work of our volunteers by ensuring clients are served well, helping volunteers serve effectively and with excellence. Meet our paid staff below!
