LeeAnn Hamilton, Board Member
I am a wife, mother, daughter, and nurse that loves the Lord. I have worked as an Elementary School Nurse for over 15 years and have served so many children who need an advocate. When not working, you can find us at a baseball field somewhere in the U.S. watching one of our kiddos do what they love!
So many children are in need of someone who has their best interest at heart. I am excited and looking forward to serving alongside a team of people who love children and will work hard to help them KNOW they MATTER. My prayer for Trels Home comes from Psalm 90:17: “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!”
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
