Maggie Taylor Lian

Spencer Maxwell

Since then, he has travelled back every year to volunteer, as well as see his family who now live there full-time. To say he loves Eswatini is a gross understatement! Prior to joining the Heart for Africa team, Spencer completed his double-masters-degree’s in Marketing Management from ESADE Business School and International Business from Queen’s University, and his BBA in Marketing at Georgia State University. Spencer currently lives in Chicago and is engaged to Jane Balasz, who he met at the age of 14 IN Eswatini!


Mandy Wallick

Sales & Warehouse Manager | Mandy is a wife and mother to 3 beautiful children, ages 4, 5, and 7.  She started to learn more about Heart for Africa through the Village Christian Church and was interested in raising awareness for Heart for Africa through her triathlons.  She was also going to help others fundraise to go to Africa, then learned that there was one spot left for the November 2017 trip.  She decided to join in and start helping other organizations fundraise using Khutsala keychains and ornaments.  She is blessed that God has laid out a path for her to be able to serve on the Heart for Africa team.
