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.
Hope Hogue, Client Coordinator.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Hope spent her childhood in Madison, Illinois. She and then husband Art Hogue married in 1988 and moved to the Ozarks in 1992 where they were both employed by Andy Williams until 2006. Currently, Hope is completing an associate’s degree in business & marketing to be followed by a bachelor’s degree in marketing & finance. Hope and Art were married 23 years and have two sons. Dominique and his wife Kylinn, and Arthur, all live in Branson. Hope feels truly blessed to be part of Love INC and the Ozarks.
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.
