“I felt welcomed, with open arms when I joined IJM. There’s a sense of being part of an organization that cares for mind, body, and soul. It’s also an amazing honor to link arms with talented and passionate colleagues that desire to see vulnerable, yet precious people set free from violent oppression.”
“I was resistant to move to Washington, D.C. to work for IJM, but my husband and I decided to take the leap of faith and God has immensely blessed us through that move. We have both worked for IJM and seen the amazing effort that is happening to rescue vulnerable people all over the world. In my role as Global Director, Workday I get the opportunity to strategize with Finance and HR teams to build and maintain streamlined operational processes through our Enterprise HR Information System.”
