Shara Pierce brings over 11 years of experience in pregnancy resource centers to our team here at Save the Storks. In her home state of Texas, Shara spent time in many PRC roles, including volunteer, board member, Development Director, and Executive Director. Her experience and expertise made her the perfect fit for the role of Programs Development Specialist at Save the Storks, where she now works to help PRCs develop innovative new programs and provides consulting and trainings equipping them to improve their life-saving work.
Born and raised in the Lone Star State, Shara brought Texas pride to Save the Storks when she moved to Colorado in 2015. She also brought a husband and four kids, whom she helps to homeschool when she’s not busy saving Storks. She and her family enjoy exploring Colorado and all of the new adventures that come along with cold weather and snow.
Shara’s gift is engaging in the dream and vision of PRCs alongside the centers; this allows her to help them find solutions and develop new ideas in order to become more effective in their work. Because of her extensive experience working alongside women in the pregnancy resource center setting, Shara is a go-to when other employees need a springboard for their outreach-related ideas. She loves being able to help team members take a great idea from concept to reality.
What Shara finds most fulfilling about her work here at Save the Storks is knowing that every day, her efforts are changing lives. Save the Storks founder and CEO, Joe Baker, says Shara’s “love language” is giving her more life-saving work to do. “She loves getting new projects. It’s a remarkable thing about her,” he said.
For her part, Shara says: “Everyone has their passions – those one or two things that mean enough that they are willing to be disliked and ridiculed when standing up for them. Pro-life work is that for me.” In fact, Shara was once a teen mom herself. She personally faced the same choices she has aided so many other moms to walk through ever since. “I chose life for my son,” she shares. “That choice brought with it a new understanding of the spiritual life I needed from God in order to be a good mother, and ultimately fulfill a greater purpose, changing lives.”
