Becki Plaisted / Capital Campaign Coordinator
Becki grew up on an organic dairy farm in Hammondsport, NY. Living in the country allowed her to explore God’s creation and have many outdoor adventures. At 11-years old Becki accepted God’s gift of salvation, and shortly after, discovered The Family Hour. The radio segment quickly became an evening must-have!
In school, Becki’s favorite subjects were English and Math because they were fun and challenging. She also loved playing soccer because it involved a lot of running and quilting because of its artistic qualities.
After high school, Becki worked at Oak Hill Bulk Foods as a customer service manager where she discovered her love for working with people. Now ready for college, she attended FLCC to pursue general studies. After a year’s time, and still searching for a career fit, Becki took some time off to think. As a quilter – one of her favorite hobbies – Becki thought about becoming a professional Longarm Quilter. But after a while, she realized that quilting worked better for her as a hobby.
Throughout it all, Becki remained active in her church. Each year she organized the Harvest Festival, a fun, community-wide event. She planned all the activities, organized and led the volunteers, and made sure everything went off without a hitch during the event. A group of friends from church, who also happened to be Family Life staff, kept encouraging Becki to apply for a job at the ministry, believing her skill set and creativity was a match. Turns out it was!
