Meet Our Team

Our wonderful team is full of love, passion, and understanding. We are a group of women who have been called by the Holy Spirit to love and serve EVERY mom who comes to us looking for support.

Ashley McCarty

Leader

I’m Ashley- a mother to 2 beautiful babies, wife, and Pro-Love Catholic woman with a passion for serving. After attending a Pro-Life rally at St.Benedict at Auburndale and seeing the movie Unplanned, I felt the Holy Spirit called on me to jump into action. A year of meetings/planning with the church staff and training from HQ gave birth to Embrace Grace Cordova! I am humbled and thankful to be leading this amazing group and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us! 

Noreen Sdoia

Co-Leader

Hi, my name is Noreen Sdoia. I’m a wife, mother to four and grandmother to 7. 
I’ve always said that being a mother is my “first best destiny “. 
I love my church, St. Francis of Assisi and I love God. 

Working with the Embrace Grace ministry gives me a chance to share my love of family and God with others.   The Embrace Grace ministry brings a smile to my face and Gods love to others.

Jennifer Gurley

Co-Leader

Hello!! My name is Jennifer Gurley (Jen) I am a nurse by day and wife and mommy by day and night. I was blessed this year when Ashley asked me to join as a leader with Embrace Grace. This ministry is special in so many ways but this is my way to help give back. As a mother that expected the pregnancies it was hard in general. Motherhood is hard but it is the biggest blessing a mother could ask for. I wanted to be able to help those that are struggling or just not sure where to go. I want to be able to be there for mommy’s during the their time of uncertainty. I want them to know I’m here no matter what; I can always be a phone call away. Thank you to wonderful leaders of Embrace Grace and I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderful group.
