Eve Marie Barner Gleason

Director of Affiliate Advancement

I love equipping centers to become more effective so they can empower more women and couples to choose without regret.



What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I love helping our network become more effective so they can empower more women and couples to choose without regret. Combining more than a decade of local pregnancy center experience with expertise in messaging, public policy, and risk mitigation to help our affiliates advance our shared mission is a daily joy - not to mention an opportunity to meet some of the best people in the world!

What is your favorite Bible verse/book/chapter/section? Why?

Living this wondrous story by faith:

  • God shared everything possible of the divine nature with humanity, designing us for relationships full of purposeful peace. Genesis 1:27, 28a

  • Our first parents made disastrous choices, but in mercy God sent perfect Love to walk with us. Romans 5:18-19

  • Redemption is disaster-recovery and pure delight: anyone who really wants to can be re-made to become who we were always intended to be. 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

  • We are redeemed to share a message of reconciliation with others and to be agents of God's restorative power in the world by doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God. 2 Corinthians 5:11-21; Micah 6:8

Where are you from? Where did you grow up?

I am a devoted denizen of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Old Dominion, mother of states and presidents.

What are your hobbies?

My canine pal, Coco, insists that I tell you my favorite hobby is playing with her. But I confess, I'll stuff her giant bone with peanut butter just so I can get some quiet time to read the latest book on my list. That's harder than ever to find time to do as my husband and I are now foster parents of three siblings, whom we hope to adopt. We still aren't sure what Coco thinks of politics, but then we can’t usually bring her with us when we engage in civic activities.

What is something people don't know about you?

Shhhh... don't tell anyone, but I was actually born in California.
