Meet Pivot’s Staff
In late 2015 Carol Polk answered God’s call to start Pivot Ministry to make a difference locally for His glory. This ministry captures her passion for empowering individuals and capitalizes on a management career that includes co-founding a successful company and that spans multiple industries such as professional services, consumer goods, global sourcing, computer hardware, and financial services. Carol holds an MBA from Wake Forest University.
A committed Christian since age eight, Carol has been an active member of Ardmore Baptist Church since 1983 and has a long list of life experiences that relate to Pivot’s mission. She grew up in one of the 20 poorest counties in the U.S., has taught GED classes, mentored the homeless, worked with a teen dropout, and nurtured many through job and career changes. Upon reviewing Carol’s professional and personal background, a fellow Christian said, “I’ve always known that God prepares us for what He wants us to do, but I’ve never seen it on paper.”
Angie Huffman joined Pivot on September 15, 2020, as Administrative Coordinator. In this part-time position, Angie provides administrative and programmatic support to enhance operations, strengthen relationships, and further our mission in a variety of ways. She works closely with participants, graduates, mentors, instructors, general volunteers, donors, and community partners, as well as Pivot’s board and its committees.
Angie brings a wide range of skills and experience to the table, developed through multiple years’ experience with local nonprofits. Her strengths include grant writing, fundraising, database management, administrative duties, and the coordination of projects with volunteers and boards. She builds strong relationships through her warm interpersonal and communication skills.
On a personal note, Angie is married and enjoys spending time at the beach, reading, and playing with her grandchildren.
