Accountants and finance specialists have a stereotypical reputation of being dry and boring. That would not be Alyse Hoover. Alyse, who grew up in a community church in Berne, Indiana, had nearly completed a degree in accounting when she felt God call her to cross-cultural ministry. So, she switched majors and pursued a degree in radiation therapy with a minor in business at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana. The irony of God’s call is that Alyse has consistently worked in missions finance and business since graduating and has yet to use her degree in radiation therapy. She is currently pursuing a mastor’s degree in counseling.
Alyse came to Global Strategy with deep experience in missions finances, an understanding of cross-cultural business practices, and a passion for good stewardship of resources. Directly out of college, she served for two years with Operation Mobilization as their finance officer for five countries, based on the southern end of Lake Tanganyika in Zambia. She then served as a business and finance analyst of Mission of Hope in Haiti.
