Shannon’s heart was forever changed in 2016 on her first trip to Benin with ORR. She was so inspired by what ORR was doing for the children and communities in the area, that she brought her husband back with her the next year. She is a nurse by training, a mother of 3 grown children, and has worked in children’s ministries for the past 30 years.
Krissy is a Minnesota native passionate about making the world a little bit better, every single day. She holds a bachelors degree in Psychology and French from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Public Health from the University of Liverpool. After starting her career in business and finding it a bit too constricting, she left that career and joined the Peace Corps in Benin, where she fell in love with Africa. She then oversaw the medical training programs with Mercy Ships in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Congo, Madagascar, and Benin, before joining the Orphan Relief and Rescue team as Country Director. Krissy loves travel, adventure, problem solving, and chocolate doughnuts.
Raised in a small farming and lumber community in Oregon, Sheryl has been a city-dweller for the past 34 years. First living in Los Angeles and now Seattle (Kent) with her husband of 36 years, where they raised their three, now grown children, has provided many opportunities to put her servant’s heart to work. Having worked as an Executive Assistant for most of her adult life, she feels most valuable when contributing to an organization that makes a difference in the lives of those who find themselves at risk.
For twelve years, Sheryl provided administrative support to the Executive Director and as a Development Coordinator for non-profit organizations whose focus was to free men and women from addiction and homelessness. “It’s my belief that my role to serve those who have vision and passion, helping them do what they’ve been called to do, regardless if they are the President, Executive Director, volunteer or financial donor.” At Orphan Relief and Rescue, she is looking forward to building relationships with the people that make the work that they do, possible.
To protect the identity of our African Staff, we are not able to list their names. We have a total of 10 staff members in Liberia and 4 staff members in Benin.
