Shakira McGowan — Programs & Administrative Coordinator

Shakira was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised here in Winter Park. Though Shakira loves to travel, Orlando has and always will be her home.

She has been serving and working in full time ministry for over 5 years now. Through participating in many community outreaches, connecting with individuals in need, and helping meet the practical needs of this city, her heart has grown a passion to help people. While serving, and now working at FFC, Shakira will complete her B.S. in Psychology from Southeastern University’s College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.

In her free time, Shakira loves photographing beautiful moments like proposals and engagements. And when she’s not behind a camera she enjoys walks in nature, spontaneous travels, listening to a good podcast, laughing, puzzles, and the occasional nap.
