Board Member, Owner of Allstate Commercial Flooring
Kelly Sharpe began volunteering with PLI in 2013 just before the move to our current facility. At PLI, She was a Level 3 ESL teacher, later teaching a Conversation Class with the same ladies. Eventually, she transitioned out of teaching ESL into meeting in the homes to have more consistent & purposed relationships with her students. Currently, she helps provide pastoral care at PLI, and has sat on the Board since July of 2019.
Prior to PLI, Kelly spent her early years in Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Hong Kong, and then Singapore. She returned home to marry, and her and her husband spent the next 12 years leading trainings at church that culminated in leading trips at home and abroad. She also spent 7 years teaching History, Government & Worldviews to Seniors at a private school in Spring. More recently, the Lord led Kelly to be involved in ministries that served the Refugee community, whether welcoming families to Houston or teaching ESL through her church or PLI. She graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in Social Work and Community Planning.
Kelly is married to Gary, and they have 4 wonderful children, 3 amazing son-in-laws, and 3 beautiful and fun grandchildren! Fun fact, as a Family, we have been on every continent, (except Antarctica).
