Her friends would say that Lesa is passionate about empowering women. Lesa serves on the board of Missio Alliance, the Circle of Friends board of New Friends New Life and the Economic Security Grants Review Committee for the Dallas Women’s Foundation. For the past several years, she has lead an annual trip to partner with the House of Hope a nonprofit in Nicaragua helping women escape prostitution. Today, Lesa finds herself completely taken by empowering one small girl - her first grandchild Lucy.
A native Texan and current resident of Dallas, Lesa earned a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies from Columbia International University where she met and married Mark, Executive Pastor at Woodcreek Church. Lesa has a chronic case of wanderlust, is wild about reading (favorite book, Jane Eyre), live music and anything from the seventies hippie era.
