Executive Director and Board Member
Val Anderson has served as the Executive Director of His Grace Foundation since 2004. She has been involved with HGF since its inception, working on the grassroots level to help the organization take flight as the best friend and supporter of Erin Kiltz, HGF Founder. Val is a former office manager in commercial mortgage banking and has served and led women's ministry for over 25 years. Val's administrative, fundraising and people skills have expanded HGF to double its program services since she joined 14 years ago.
Anna Boucher joined His Grace Foundation as the Program Director in December 2020. She comes from a strong background in Child Development, having worked as a Certified Child Life Specialist in the hospital setting with a large variety of patient populations for the past five and a half years. She brings with her expertise in family-centered care, skills in event planning, experience collaborating with the interdisciplinary medical team, and a working knowledge of the hospital setting.
Abby has been connected with HGF from the beginning as a dear friend of the Kiltz family since childhood. She joined the HGF staff in January 2014 to manage volunteers, enhance communications and online presence and provide general program assistance. Abby now focuses entirely on HGF's print and online communication. She is also a freelance writer with bylines at Texas Monthly, Bustle, and Christianity Today.
Katie brought her accounting expertise to His Grace Foundation in March 2021 after learning about the organization through her friend, HGF Board Member Cathy Marquis. Katie started EmPowered Business Solutions so that she could dedicate herself to being a full-time mom to her two beautiful children, a business owner, and a wife. A Summa Cum Laude alumna of the University of Houston Downtown, Katie received honors as an Outstanding Accounting Graduate of 2011.
