-Meet the team-

Friendly ladies

Let us introduce you to our staff members working here at Alpha Women’s Center. These ladies are a very friendly bunch, they have lots of experience, and they are all passionate about helping you.

-Jeanie Thomas-

Hey there! I’m Jeanie, and I’m the Executive Director. God has given me a love for people–specifically for women. I love to teach, to encourage, and walk alongside others, especially when life is tough!

I’m married for over 30 years (to the same man!) and have 3 adult children, and two of the most adorable grandchildren on the planet. I love to cook and delight in creating new things for my loved ones to enjoy. I became a Christian at the age of 14. God came alongside me in my crazy dysfunctional family life and showed me that He loves me—that I am His, and He has good plans for me! And I can rest in His loving arms.

We want to demonstrate the dignity and value of human life in everything we do. We would love to meet you and get to know you and how we can be an encouragement to you. You can shoot me an email at awc1dsm@gmail.com. Hope to see you soon!

-Chelsea Smith-

Hey there! 🙂 My name is Chelsea. I am a staff member here at the Alpha Women’s Center. I joined Alpha after moving from the Chicago area and having worked for a pregnancy resource center there, I wanted to continue serving women in the community I lived in by meeting them where they are and loving them with the love Christ has shown me.

I am married to my husband and we are moving through the adoption process to hopefully grow our family. I enjoy coffee (maybe too much) and visiting coffee shops and thrift stores, finding hidden treasures. I became a Christian around the age of 19 and since then the Lord has shown me what loving people really looks like by showing me how much He truly loves me. The peace that He has given me can not be explained, He is a good God.

This is a safe, warm, loving, nonjudgmental place for you to come with tears, with laughter or questions and we will be here to walk with you through it. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me at awc6ank@gmail.com.

-Sharon Jingst-

My name is Sharon, and I work as part of the staff here at Alpha. I am so glad to be a part of this team and to be able to meet and work with all the clients that come in to see us at Alpha Women’s Center. I started volunteering at Alpha because I wanted to help other women who are pregnant, and especially those who may feel alone and without hope.

I’m a married mother of 2 and grandmother of 5. I love to spend time with my grandchildren, travel, read and spend time in nature. I’m so thankful for God’s love, and for all He’s done for me.

I became a Christian at a very young age, and know I can always depend on God…He is so faithful. I would love to have you come and visit us at Alpha! If you want to get in touch with me, I can be reached at awc2dsm@gmail.com.

-Becky Felderman-

My name is Becky. I am a staff member at Alpha Women Center. Having and caring for children is tough work. I want to help women with this rewarding and important job.

I am a busy wife, mother of 4, and grandmother of 4. I trusted Christ as my savior while sitting on my mother’s knee at the age of 5. My relationship with God through Jesus Christ is more important to me than anything.

Stop in at 114 S.W. State Street in Ankeny, between 9 and 5! I would love to meet you!

-Martha Wyatt-

Hi, My name is Martha. I have been with Alpha Women’s Center for 10 + years. I started volunteering before moving into a staff position and enjoy so much getting to know ladies in the community and coming alongside as a friend during a time that can be overwhelming.

I am married and have 2 children and 3 grandsons. I became a Christian at age 32. God has completely turned my life around. I used to live for the pleasures of this world. I now have a peace knowing that God is in control of what comes my way. It’s liberating!!

I would love for you to come visit us no matter what your circumstances. You can reach me at awc3dsm@gmail.com
