Board of Directors

Dana Sue Walker – Board President/Founder of Spirit of Sophia

It was pure joy to see my vision on paper become reality in June of 2015.  It is continued joy to see Spirit of Sophia grow and evolve and to meet so many fascinating, caring, deep seekers along the way. My business experience both in the for and non-profit sectors, along with my theological studies background, helped pave the  path that led to Spirit of Sophia. 

Sr. Loretta Spotila – Board Vice President

I’m pleased to partner with Dana as a Board member and early supporter of her Spirit of Sophia ministry. In 1997 I developed a ministry in Eastern Kentucky to bring faith and healing to Appalachia. Through a variety of experiences and programs, Dana and I share a commitment to promote healthy and faith-filled living for women and families. I look forward to seeing Spirit of Sophia continue to enhance the lives of others!

Molly Odom, Treasurer

Prior to my career as a Federal Public Defender in Houston, Texas, I was an arts administrator for museums and ballet companies in Texas and Kentucky. I am currently a Family Room Coordinator for Ronald McDonald House Charities-Kentuckiana. I discovered Spirit of Sophia’s online programs during Covid. What began as a lifeline during a time of isolation has become a gift for life. It is an honor and a privilege to serve on the Board of Directors. 

Paula Miller, Board Secretary

I am delighted and honored to be joining the Board of Spirit of Sophia in 2023.  I witnessed the beginning of this wonderful organization and was so impressed with Dana and the leadership invested in creating a platform for women seekers. I am a retired middle school teacher, having retired in 2002.  I have been involved in organizations that promote equality, fairness, and civil rights for many years.  I believe it is of great value to society that women know their worth and proclaim it in all situations when the need arises. Spirit of Sophia is a valuable tool in that regard.
