team12Bre-Ann Laypoole serves as a house parent at Compass Rose and is responsible for the student’s day-to-day routine at the cottage, which includes getting the girls to school on time, taking them to their appointments, daily recreation, cooking meals and planning activities. Bre-Ann has been with Compass Rose for almost three years now, joining the team after graduating from the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff with a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics.

She has experience in a number of ministry organizations such as the Baptist Collegiate Ministry, First Baptist White Hall youth group and Bible study at the Boys and Girls Club. Bre-Ann also worked with the Missionary Athletes International soccer ministry called the Chicago Eagles, where she spent two summers using soccer as a tool to share Christ with children in the U.S. and Brazil.

Bre-Ann really loves working with the team at Compass Rose and has experienced a lot of personal growth since arriving almost three years ago which has also helped build better relationships with the girls. One of Bre-Ann’s favorite things about her job is when a student allows her to pray with them. This gives the students a chance to be vulnerable and break through some of those emotional walls they might have up.

Bre-Ann has touched the lives of many while at Compass Rose! Thank you Bre-Ann for being such an important part of our team!
