Board of Directors
Meet Our Team!
Lacie, our newest board member, joined us January, 2023. Lacie grew up in Streator, IL, but now lives in Chicago in the Logan Square neighborhood. Lacie attended Illinois Valley Community College and studied nursing. She currently is a clinical staff nurse for a large Dermatology practice. Lacie goes to Soul City Church where their mission is to lead people into a transforming relationship with Jesus. In addition to this, they have a strong focus for the mental health of the Chicago community. In her free time, she loves music/street festivals, trying new restaurants, and binging Netflix.
Lacie came to know about Living Vine when Ron Presley was the lead pastor at her church in Streator. In 2005, she and her mom, Gayle, were blessed to be able to travel to Cameroon. It was here that Lacie witnessed first hand their underdeveloped healthcare system. While it isn’t what we expect here in America, the doctors and nurses are doing their best with the resources they have. Her prayer for Living Vine is to lift the stigma of mental health and for those to have easy access to much needed treatment. The Bible reminds us often that Jesus is our light and hope, and I long that the people of Cameroon experience stepping from darkness to light.
