Alice Smith


Alice is new to the SI staff, hired in August 2020 as the Accounting Manager in the Visalia office. She is a life-long resident of the Selma/Kingsburg area, and is active in the Kingsburg First Baptist Church. She earned her bachelor’s degrees (Accounting and Music) from Fresno Pacific College (now University), and has many years of work experience in the public and private sectors of K-12 and post-secondary education. Alice has been interested in becoming involved with international ministry, and SI is providing this opportunity to combine her skills at finance and her growing heart’s passion. She has been married to Tim for nearly 32 years, and they have two grown sons, Patrick and Robert. Alice enjoys sipping coffee with friends, working in the garden, travelling, and hosting dinner parties. She and Tim can sometimes be seen on their tandem bicycle in their neighborhood, heading to grab a treat at the local pizza spot or bakery!

Romans 12:1 (Msg) “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him.”

Psalm 63:7-8 (NIV) “Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings. I cling to You; Your right hand upholds me.”
