About Rory

Rory…she has a God-given blend of grace, love, passion and fire. She will inspire you with her words and her example to lead with purpose. Two things are sure to bring out the passion in her; God, her family, serving our DR community, and nametags. She has two incredibly adorable twins, Grace and Hugo. Hugo has cerebral palsy, but he also has a smile that will pull you out of a mood. Grace is a warrior like her mom. Her husband Mark; the exact balance God knew Rory would thrive with! Rory leads with grace and is ready to take on any mountain. Her poise, kindness and incredible style make anyone want to befriend her. However, the fire inside her; the side that comes out when someone crosses her healthy boundaries, or her family, well; it makes anyone want to stand WITH her, not against her.

Why did you choose to work at David's Refuge?

I loved the idea of being able to come alongside families like mine and pour love, compassion and hope into them.

Phoenix because when life has hard moments, I always work to rise from the ashes with grace and renewed hope.

Where would your dream vacation be?

Paris and then the French countryside.

What's on your playlist right now?

Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, John Denver….I like to mix it up!

Who inspires you?

My mom. She lived each day walking in love, pouring compassion into other and always looking for simple ways she could make someone’s life better. Each day I pray that her legacy lives on in me.
