Board of Directors
Megan joined the Board in July 2008. After receiving a B.S. Degree, she currently works as a Home Educator.

It is an honor for her to be a part of an organization that consistently pursues excellence while providing hope to women in seemingly hopeless situations.
Bruce joined the Board in 2003. Bruce owns and operates Moon Design Mfg. He was introduced to Alternatives in 1995 through a church work project. After he better understood the organization’s mission and the lives that they were saving, he wanted to do anything and everything that he could to support this ministry. Bruce thanks God for His blessings by allowing him to be involved with Alternatives; he encourages others to get involved and be blessed as they glorify His Kingdom.
Linda joined the board in July of 2015. Linda works as loan processor and notary public. As a praying mom with grown children and grandchildren, her heart became burdened for the lives of young women. She was blessed to see that Alternatives Medical Clinic was grounded in God’s truth and passionate about sharing His truth with young women and families. Linda says, “I followed God’s leading and had to get involved.”
Tom joined the Board in April 2012. Tom received both B.S. & M.S. degrees in the Engineering field and a MBA in Management. Currently he is retired.

Bob joined the Board in 2013. He has a B.S. Degree in Engineering and J.D. in Law. He is currently retired. He was alarmed over the destruction of babies and the effect on young people. So he became involved with Alternatives to help change this situation.
Mary Jo joined the Board in the fall of 2017. She is an RN with experience in labor and delivery, newborn nursery and post partem care. She started volunteering at AMC while it was becoming a medical clinic serving as nurse manager until 1998 when she became Director of the clinic, retiring from that position in 2003. She has always had a heart for mothers and their babies and has worked to support them. She and her husband Ward fostered drug and alcohol exposed infants for ten years. Her heart is with the mission and work of AMC and she is happy to be actively involved again.

Kim previously served on the board approximately 15 years ago. She is married to Kirk and has 4 kids and 2 grandkids.
