Get to know Jacqui Hickey! Check out the interview below and then read her entire bio on our site.
I was first introduced through PJ Hartzell when she took her first trip with CC to Mali.
She and I are both members of Grace Bible Fellowship Church and she shared pictures and stories from her trip during a church service. I was reintroduced when I heard about Wheels for Wells in the spring of 2011 and decided to participate as a rider in that summer’s event.
The Wheels for Wells trip was a wonderful experience and I had thought about being more actively involved with CC after the trip, but I did not follow through originally. I ran into Jan and Beth at Burlap and Bean that winter and we had a chance to catch up. As they were leaving, I just mentioned that if there was ever anything that I could do for them to please ask. They invited me to their next staff meeting and that was it!
I am a volunteer staff member/public relations associate in Compassion Corps’ information division.
My trip to Liberia in 2012. What an amazing way to see God’s hand at work through CC’s partners. It’s beautiful and so exciting!
I am passionate about the water projects because of my connection to Wheels for Wells. I have seen the extraordinary power of clean and accessible water first-hand and I am glad that CC is committed to that cause.
I play the oboe.
Liberia, summer 2012. I loved seeing one of the actual wells that was being installed as a result of the money raised from Wheels for Wells. That was a full-circle moment for me.
