Meet the Team
Stuart became aware of the needs of Moldova’s orphans in 2005 through a partnership between Sweet Sleep and EMI CMG, where he served as Director of Inventory Management for ten years. The following year, Stuart took his first trip to Moldova and his passionate advocacy for orphaned and abandoned children deepened.
Stuart served as the first Chairman of Sweet Sleep’s Board of Directors before joining the Sweet Sleep executive staff. He has been pivotal in moving the ministry into Haiti and Uganda, and in more than doubling Sweet Sleep’s beds delivery capacity over three years.
VP of Donor Engagement
Lisa’s greatest joy is growing relationships with others! Her previous careers in publishing and conference leading at Lifeway Christian Resources, and as Senior Editor/Investment Limited Partner at J.C. Bradford & Co. were the perfect preparation for a development career.
She pursues excellence through best practices regarding donations, online acquisition and retention, database management, and board governance.
Lisa completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Baylor University and her Master of Education in Early Childhood at Middle Tennessee State University.
She lives in Nashville near her extended family and two adult children.
National Director of Uganda
Josephine serves as Sweet Sleep’s National Director of Uganda. At the age of 7, she became a single orphan and was exposed to the challenges of life faced by those that Sweet Sleep now strives to protect.
Before Sweet Sleep, Josephine served as Administrator at Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation, an NGO focused on providing education, shelter and care to orphans, helping coordinate care for needy and orphaned children in Uganda.
Program Director of Northern Uganda
Jennifer is Sweet Sleep’s Program Director of Northern Uganda. Before Sweet Sleep, she served as Field Manager for American Refugee Committee, where she identified family land sites and resettled refugees who had been displaced by the 24-year civil war in Northern Uganda.
She grew up in Northern Uganda during the brutal LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) attacks. After losing both her parents to rebel attacks, she has a first hand understanding of the suffering and needs of the estimated 750,000 children growing up in child-headed households in the region.
