The title is Vice President/Communications but, really, Evelyn is the soul of Ambassador. She is immersed in crafting the words that come to life through a variety of ministry speakers--both on-air and in print. Her inveterate love of reading (yes, she owns a Kindle) makes her one astute yet seasoned veteran in our industry.
As much as Ev has given her heart (for two decades) to the organizations Ambassador serves, anyone who knows her knows her true love is ... kids. Her volunteer work as a CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocate for abused children) has been honored with national recognition. And her devotion to the Compassion kids she sponsors has meant several trips to Africa, including a visit to Ethiopia to participate in the graduation of that country's first LDP student--hers! Committed to the local Body as well, she's deeply involved in leadership at her home church (Grace Community in Seal Beach) where outreach includes the Long Beach Mission and its ministry to local children. And ... just to make life interesting--she drives a red Corvette convertible!
