-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-

Hi 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 35 years (to the same man!) and have 3 adult children, and three 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 find out how we can be an encouragement to you. You can shoot me an email at awc1dsm@gmail.com. Hope to see you soon!

-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.

-Malisa Bounkhong-

Hello!  My name is Malisa and I am a staff member at Alpha Women’s Center. I am very thankful for the opportunity God has given me to work alongside women who care for, love, and desire to encourage the women who come in and see us at the center.  

I am engaged to my best friend and am excited to marry him in November! 

God saved me at the age of 15 by using a loving and faithful friend who invested in my life and showed me my desperate need for His love and forgiveness.  God has always shown Himself faithful, loving, and steadfast throughout my life, even when I am unfaithful, unloving, and wavering.

I would love to have you visit us at Alpha!  If you have any questions or would like to reach me, you can email me at awc9dsm@gmail.com.  Hope to see you soon!  

-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!  Or you can email me at awc4ank@gmail.com.  I would love to meet you!

-Cindy Knight-

Hi!  My name is Cindy, and I joined Alpha Women’s Center because I want to help other women during pregnancy.  I know from my own experience that pregnancy can be a challenging time.

I am a widow and have 2 children and 9 grandchildren.  God drew me to salvation when I was 28.  He has changed me and gives me strength every day.  I am so thankful He loves me and is always with me!

I would love to have you visit us!  We will be so glad to help you.  You can reach me at awc8dsm@gmail.com.
