Lexie Voorhees serves on the Board team as a Volunteer Treasurer. She worked in the Finance organization at Compassion International in an IT Finance role.
Lexie is more than a conqueror. She is an overcomer! She has an amazing God story and has firsthand knowledge of the pain and despair that comes from a childhood of neglect and abuse. But she also knows the healing and transforming power of Jesus Christ — a power she only began to realize with more depth and discernment, ten years after accepting Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 16. Over the next two decades, Lexie journeyed with God, persevering in allowing Him to not only mend her broken heart, but to show her how to put the past behind her and live life with amazing joy, discovering that God’s faithfulness, provisions and love are truly more than we could ever imagine!
Lexie received her Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Finance from the University of Arizona, where she also minored in French. From 2000-2007, she worked at The Clorox Company in the Bay area in California. In 2009, she moved to Colorado to work at Compassion International and left there in May 2015.
Since leaving Compassion, Lexie continues to pursue God’s call to share His work in her life with others. She currently lives in Tuscon, Arizona. Her knowledge in areas of conflict resolution, peace-making strategies, overcoming emotions stemming from verbal and violent attacks and developing effective communication skills make her an ideal go-to speaker for non-profit organizations and Christian small groups.
Lexie also has international experience. As an avid adventurer, she has traveled to ten countries in Africa, Asia, South America and Europe. She values all cultures and loves to share the love of God with all nationalities and ethnicities as she feels we are all one in God’s family.
