Foundation announces three recent staff additions

By: Rev. Ed New

I am excited to share three updates regarding our incredible staff at the Florida United Methodist Foundation.

Tamika Smith

On August 14th the Foundation welcomed Tamika Smith as our new Assistant Treasurer.  Tamika comes to the Foundation from The Vanguard School in Lake Wales where she was Director of Finance.

Having served as a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors for the past year, she quickly saw the impact of our ministry and this opportunity was a great blend of her passion for ministry and her skills. We are very fortunate to have Tamika join us in our mission to help churches, agencies, and individuals put faithful stewardship into action. Welcome, Tamika!

Amie Steelman

The Florida United Methodist Foundation is excited to share that after a significant search, Amie Steelman was hired as our Development Associate in July. Her primary responsibility will be to help support our commitment to nurture current and future relationships. The impact she brings to our Development Team is incredible thanks to her immense experience in the non-profit/education sector where she was involved in positively shaping organizational relationships and project management. We are excited for our partners to meet and discover just how awesome Amie is!

Christie Morrison

Christie Morrison, who has served on the Foundation’s staff for the past 16 years, was promoted to Development Officer effective July 1. Christie served the Foundation most recently as an accounting manager. Christie completed her coursework for the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) certification in the spring and successfully passed the exam shortly after. With this new credential, Christie is equipped to support our partners in the way of providing financial planning advice covering topics including income tax, retirement, risk management, estate planning and investments.

Christie is already actively visiting with churches and individuals providing insight and information about how the Foundation is uniquely positioned to offer congregations and individuals the resources and tools they need to be more faithful stewards. We are thankful for Christie and the many ways she has, is and will continue to be a blessing to the work of the Foundation.
