We at Haiti Awake are happy to announce that our stateside team is growing again! Liz Kyle, a pharmacist here in Wilmington, NC, has agreed to join our team as our US Volunteer Medical Coordinator.
Two of Liz’s main passions are learning and teaching. She received her pharmacy degree from her home state of Michigan in 2010 and shortly after moved to North Carolina to work in a physician’s office providing medical care for high-risk patients while collaboratively training health care professionals.
God put international ministry on Liz’s heart years ago, showing how He can reveal His power and love through intercultural collaboration. She enjoys learning about other cultures through international travel, including her first mission trip to the Dominican Republic in 2014.
In March of 2017, Liz was able to travel with a team to serve alongside Haiti Awake staff in Port-au-Prince. During that week, she was inspired by the work that was being done to bring development to the country through practical, Christ-centered interventions.
After returning to the US, Liz remained in contact with the Haiti Awake team to help coordinate care for the children of Haiti Awake. Liz is excited to be moving into a more formalized role as the Volunteer Medical Coordinator!
In this role she will coordinate care for Haiti Awake children as well as medical training for the staff and associates, thus enabling better community medical care throughout Haiti.
We are thankful to have her on our team!
