Shirley first heard the gospel from an EE team on the beach in Fort Lauderdale in 1975. Although it took several years and some wrong turns, she responded to Christ in 1990 and a few short years later answered the call to serve in the EE Ministry of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. After 7 years, God called her to missionary work with EE USA, from her new home in Ocala, FL. For the last 11+ years, she has served in various roles, from local representative, to special assistant to the president. In her current role as assistant to the US Director, Shirley manages data, coordinates events, and performs a myriad of tasks to keep the field staff moving in the same direction and ensuring the ministry continues to grow, ever mindful of the goal to empower lay people to share the gospel and fulfill the Great Commission. Her personal life is filled with serving at her home church, ministering at the local women's correctional institute, and loving on her elderly parents and two wonderful grandchildren, Sawyer and Anabelle.
