Cheryl Lovejoy // President // Cheryl grew up in the Los Angeles area and was blessed to have a family that loved her and invested in her future. As Tirzah's President, Cheryl is thrilled to be part of a team that invests in women across the globe, encouraging them to believe that they are made in God's image and that He has exciting purposes for them to fulfill.

Casandra Morgan-Loyer // Regional Leader for North America // Casandra is an Emmy-nominated writer who joined the staff of Tirzah in January 2014 as Tirzah's Regional Leader for North America after serving as the co-leader of Tirzah's Los Angeles chapter. Casandra loves all kinds of stories and believes in the power of the individual's story to inform and move people to action. Her personal mission is to help women and girls thrive, prosper, believe, hope, laugh uncontrollably and know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they matter. She gets a huge thrill out of connecting people in North America with the justice issues that impact women and girls globally and she really, really doesn't like when people are mean to those who have less power. She lives in California with her very creative husband, Erik and their two children.
Emma Reimers // Creative Communications Director // Emma is a California native who found her way to Tennessee for school (go 'Dores!) and music. She is a writer of many things - songs, blogs, poems, novellas, essays, embarrassing 6th grade journal entries - and loves anything to do with learning, food, design, city planning, and art. Emma first became interested in investing in women's rights, education, and health care through a trip to Kenya in 2009. Seeing how few girls made it past the 8th grade inspired Emma to leverage her education and cultivate her talents to the fullest capacity to empower others to do the same. She is ecstatic to be a part of Team Tirzah and use creativity to bring color to the powerful stories God is writing through women and girls. Emma lives in Nashville with her science genius husband, Jackson and their pet plant.
