Carrie Evans: Executive Director
Reverend Carrie Evans is an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church USA. After 15 years in ministry, she felt a strong calling to be more directly involved in affecting change in our community. That calling led her directly to the doorstep of Stafford Junction as the executive director Carrie Evans joined Stafford Junction in the fall of 2015. She comes with a long history of non-profit experience as well as a deep and abiding passion for building community.
Her favorite quote is from Ghandi: “Be the Change You Want to See in the World”

Lynn was born and raised in San Diego, CA but recently relocated to Virginia with her family. Her extensive background in marketing/sales along with over 10 years as a community resource coordinator with a large school district in San Diego County is a perfect match for Stafford Junction. Her 10 years with the La Mesa Rotary Club and serving as club president aids her in understanding what a golden resource service clubs, chambers, churches and local businesses are to a non-profit. WARNING…. Lynn is not shy to ask the community to get involved and help out.

Olga Escobar: Adult Life Skills/Healthy Living Pays Program Manager
I was born and raised in Colombia where I graduated in political Science with emphasis in Social Psycology. I’ve had the opportunity to live and travel abroad developing a keen sensitivity for people from diverse backgrounds. I truly believe in the power that education and coaching can have on the solution for many of the problems that disadvantaged communities face in their daily lives.
While working for Stafford Junction, I hope to continue the wonderful job they have been doing in educating the community about the importance of health and wellness. I recently became an American citizen; therefore I feel truly privileged to be a part of Stafford Junction and its mission to give back to the community and help to build a better country. I love spending time with my husband, my three children and my pets. I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling and visiting art museums.
