Our Vestry and Staff

Jim Di Giovanna, Senior Warden

Jim Di Giovanna and his wife Lisa moved to Lacey, WA in 2012 from California where he was active in several ministries and church leadership roles including senior warden, treasurer and president of the Diocese of Western Anglicans’ Executive Committee. Since moving to Washington, Jim and his wife have continued to remain very active in ministry, serving at the Olympia Union Gospel Mission, participating in jail ministries with Thurston County Jail and opening their home to Bible studies within their
community. Jim is the current senior warden and treasurer for New Hope and president of the Diocesan Council for the Anglican Diocese of Cascadia here in the Pacific Northwest. Although raised Roman Catholic, Jim was received into the Anglican Communion in 1997 and has served faithfully ever since. He is committed to a life of servant leadership and discipleship in Christ.

Gregory Foss, Junior Warden

Kelsey Boyce, Vestry

Kelsey lives in the Olympia area with her husband Matt, and their fluffy and ridiculous cat. She grew up in the Presbyterian church, so liturgy and tradition have always been a great comfort. Kelsey works for the state, and uses her background in theatre and music both in and out of the church. In her free time, Kelsey can often be found volunteering at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum, performing with the Puget Sound Revels, holding folk music jam sessions, and adventuring with her husband. Her motto has long been “I’m Third” – ask her about it sometime!

Sasha Jensen, Vestry

Sasha was born in Vancouver, Washington but has lived all over the United States. After marrying her husband Jeramy and his departure from the Marine Corps, they both decided to go back to school and return to her home state. Now living in Lacey with their three dogs (Noah, Abby, & Cocoa), she currently works as a RN at SJMC and is going to school to become a nurse practitioner. Sasha also helps with organizing and planning church events, but on her off-time, she and her husband love to explore the Pacific Northwest by hiking, random road trips, and trying new restaurants. Her favorite quote is by Anne Frank who said “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”.
