Meet Our Staff:
Jennifer Maupin, Executive Director.
Growing up in Springfield, MO, and sharing many wonderful family memories as a child in the Forsyth and Branson area during the ’50s and ’60s, Jennifer made the decision to move here in 1971. Having begun employment with Silver Dollar City in 1975 (working with the Front Gate Team), she was privileged to be a part of the SDC family collectively for almost 25 years. Having an associate’s degree in office administration, her resumé includes retail and office management as well as group sales in the tourism and hospitality industry. She came to Love INC in 2012 as office administrator.
Jennifer and her husband Patrick currently live in Branson where Patrick serves the community as a nurse.
Adrianne Lucas, Client Services Director.
Though she was born in Great Bend, KS, Adrianne refers to herself as a local, growing up in Kimberling City. She graduated from Reeds Spring High School in 2002. In 2009, she graduated from College of the Ozarks. She comes to us from Love INC of the Tri-Cities in Grand Haven, MI, where she worked with over 30 churches to provide ministries and services to those in need in the community.
In late 2016, her husband, Levi, accepted a position as a firefighter with the Branson Fire Department, bringing them back to the Ozarks. In March of 2017, in ways that only the Lord can orchestrate, she was offered a position at OMC Love INC. In seeing this opportunity unfold, she believes that God ordained these last few years to provide tools and experience specifically for her role here!
Adrianne and Levi are very thankful for the opportunity to pursue their callings and live close to family. Their two fur-babies are Toothless, the queen kitty of the house, and a Goldendoodle named Goose.
Mary West, Staff Assistant.
Mary Grace West and her husband Jim are both native Missourians, having grown up in Kansas City. They met at Avondale Baptist Church and have been married now 50 years. Both are alumni of The Briercrest Bible College, Caronport, Saskatchewan and have lived in the Branson area for the past 12 years calling First Baptist Church of Branson their church home.
Mary successfully represented Mary Kay Cosmetics as a senior sales director from 1970 to 1995 and, after moving to Branson, Mary joined the Salvation Army staff as a social worker. She devoted her spare time to volunteer work for Love INC for several years, accepting the position of staff assistant when it became available. Mary has continued to bless this ministry as a paid employee since 2013.
