Meet your CHM staff: Emily Hardy and Marjorie "Nan" DeMoss
Emily Hardy works in the CHM department in which medical bill information is entered into the ministry’s database. Nan DeMoss serves in the Member Advocate department, providing members with tools and resources to obtain the best possible price on their medical bills.
How did you become a Christian? A few years ago my dad battled a rare case of lymphoma. My eyes were slowly opened to God’s goodness and grace toward my family’s aching hearts. I look back on that year and can see how He prepared room in my heart for Him. I became a true follower of Christ at that time and have been learning and growing every day since. God is so good; today my dad is cancer-free!
How do you hope to make a difference at CHM? My hope is to bring a kind smile and word of encouragement to any person who needs it. Moments like that leave a lasting impression, and I want to be known for a positive, loving attitude and willingness to serve others.
Where did you work before joining the CHM staff? I graduated from the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio. Following an internship at a Hudson, Ohio, Sherwin Williams paint store, I served on the management team there.
Name one of your favorite books. That’s a tough question because I love sci-fi fantasy novels. I’ll go with The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
What about you might surprise others? I’m a huge Disney fan and I married a man who shares the same fascination. Of course, we went to Disney World for our honeymoon.
What would you tell yourself at age 13? Stop straightening your hair; curly hair rocks and everybody knows it.
Describe your most heartwarming childhood memory. My grandma on my mother’s side spent holidays baking cookies with her children and grandchildren. I’m trying to continue this tradition with my daughter and six grandkids.
Where were you when you gave your life to Christ? I was attending our church camp at Beulah Beach in Vermilion, Ohio.
What’s your favorite Bible passage and why? Psalm 121 reminds us that the Lord is the one in whom we find help. He watches over us with great care.
Where did you work prior to CHM? After 28 years I retired from my position as the activity director of a retirement community in Copley, Ohio.
Name one thing you couldn’t live without. My relationship with Jesus Christ.
What is your favorite place? Visiting the ocean or hiking in peaceful woods.
