Alisha currently serves as the Bond Hill Site Manager. She began serving as a Volunteer Peer Counselor and training assistant in 2022.
She was led to end her police career early due to a late-stage colon cancer diagnosis at the age of 33. The doctors stated, “We don’t know why you got sick; you are just unlucky.” Alisha decided not to accept her unlucky fate and tap into Christ for answers and strength, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me Philippines 4:13, is the scripture she turns to when life gets rough. She decided that she had the power in Christ and, with the help of her community, to overcome cancer and be better than before. She learned that physical, mental, and spiritual health are connected and committed to doing the work and making lifestyle changes that would foster health and healing.
Cancer-free since 2018, Alisha strives to help women live a balanced life with healthy boundaries, managed stress, and tools to understand and overcome adversity and trauma. She believes that God does not intend life to be easy or stress-free, but he will walk with and support us.
Although her police career ended, her service ministry did not. Alisha continues to coach and mentor women and children as a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach. She loves to teach and learn; she holds a Master’s in Criminal Justice from the University of Cincinnati and is pursuing a Masters in Clinical Mental Health from the University of the Cumberlands.
Alisha, her husband, and her son are members of Crossroads church. She loves traveling, reading, eating delectable dishes, exercising, hiking, playing volleyball, spending time with family, and hosting social events.
