Shakira McGowan — Executive & Programs Assistant

Shakira was born in Mississippi but raised here in Orlando and she wouldn’t have wanted to be raised anywhere else. Though Shakira loves to travel, Orlando will always be her home.

Shakira spent the past 4 years serving and working in full time ministry at Faith Assembly here in Orlando. Through participating in many community outreaches, connecting and communicating with individuals in need, and helping meet the practical needs of this city, her heart has grown a burden 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. When not behind a camera Shakira enjoy walks in nature, spontaneous day trips, listening to a good psychology podcast, laughing, and the occasional nap.
