The Team



Meet your 2019-2020 Derwood MOPS Steering Team (and their families)! These ladies work hard behind the scenes to make our MOPS meetings wonderful.



   Kate Harrell, Co-Coordinator                                                 


Kate is a wife, mommy, pre-school teacher, and lover of all things crafty. This is her 5th year in MOPS and 3rd year with the wonderful Derwood ladies. Kate and her husband, Mat, met while in college at Virginia Tech (GO HOKIES!) and have 2 kids, Liam (4) and Caroline (2).  They are a military family who has the honor of seeing the amazing world God has made. Some of Kate’s favorite things include the beach, football, and family time. Kate is excited to share fellowship, the love of Jesus Christ, laughter, and coffee with all the women in MOPS this year.

Lita Solis, Co-Coordinator



  This is Lita's third year in MOPS. She is mom to a son named Gunner and a daughter named Honor.  She and her husband met 14 years ago at work,  and got married 9 years ago. She LOVES the outdoors: walking, hiking, jogging (although she will never claim to be a runner), biking, canoeing. She's trying to teach her kids to love it too. She is originally from Alabama and is still a Crimson Tide fan. She loves Jesus and the way the Holy Spirit can make scripture come alive when she stops and gives it her time. She is trying hard to do more of it- the stopping- to let the Lord meet her.

Kory Glossop, Assistant Coordinator and MOPS Kids



Kory Glossop is entering her 5th year with Derwood MOPS and is very excited for her new role this year. She and her husband Steve have been married for 7 years (as of October) and have 2 boys: Caleb is 4.5 and Levi just turned 1. Kory loves reality competition, cooking and home shows and talking to friends (or really anyone who will interact and talk back!) She currently works with the high school youth group at DBC in addition to helping with MOPS and is passionate about seeing both groups thrive in the grace and love afforded them in Christ!


Amanda Stack, Registration



  Amanda grew up in upstate NY. She studied Public Communications at Ashland University in Ohio. She moved to Montgomery County in 2002 to pursue her Masters which she earned from American University. She met her husband in 2007 and has two boys James (4yo) and Owen (2yo). Amanda loves to cook, create, and travel: some of which she’s able to do with littles! Amanda works part time for a contract company. This is her 4th year at MOPS, and first on the steering team.

Kristen Llewellyn, Hopsitality



Kristen grew up in the Olney area, where she met her husband, Paul, in third grade. She went to Mississippi College where she studied elementary education. After graduating, she returned to the area and has taught first, fourth, and fifth grades. She and Paul have two sons Clayton (3) and Brooks (1.5).

Jennifer Hsu, Creative Activities


Jennifer was born and raised in Montgomery County and is currently teaching part time in the county. This will be her third year attending MOPS and she is excited to serve as one of the creative activities leaders. As you can assume from her role she enjoys doing all kinds of crafts as well as baking, cooking, and spending quality time with family and friends. She is married to Stephen and they have 2 human babies, Matty (4.5) and Lilly (15mo) as well as one fur baby, Khaleesi (8). Jennifer is looking forward to another great year with MOPS and building relationships with other mommas who love God!


Taryn Ramsammy,  Table Leader


Taryn is a wife, mother, and business owner. She loves Jesus, caffeine, and sarcasm, in that order. Her journey to motherhood began as a foster momma and she became a bio momma shortly after. She is hoping to add adoptive momma to that list very soon! She and her husband, Liam, got married just out of college six years ago. They have five adorably rambunctious kiddos: Three foster sons, ages 5, 4 & 2, and two bio daughters ages 3 & 7mo! This is her fourth year in MOPS and first year on steering. She is so grateful for this group for the way it has shaped her as a mother and broadened her faith. And she is so excited to share that fellowship with all the mommas this year!

Wintana Kiros, Table Leader


Wintana is originally from Ethiopia, a country in East Africa. She is a follower of Jesus, a wife, a mother and a “Mompreneur”.  Wintana is married to her best friend Daniel and has two busy boys, Nathaniel (4) and Samuel (2).  Her passion and mission is to help individuals gain their health as a dietitian and health coach.  She loves everything that has to do with empowering, encouraging and supporting  women to be their best version of themselves.  This is her second year in MOPS and first time as a table leader. She hopes to serve and love on the women at her table this year.  God is going to do great things this upcoming year, she can’t wait to find out.  


Haley Evans, Table Leader



Haley Evans has three crazy men in her life and is loving every minute of it!  Born and raised in Oklahoma, she moved to Maryland for her husbands fellowship and career in June of 2017.  She is a momma to two boys, Graham who is 5 years old and Cohen who is 2 years old. She has been married to her husband Blake for almost 9 years now.  She loves Jesus, coffee, reality TV, naps, yoga pants and a good book!

She appreciates a good meme and feels like laughter, sugar and good people are the cure to anything!  This is her second year in MOPS and her first year as a table leader. MOPS helped to introduce her to many amazing women and she is very excited to rock a second year with a great group of ladies! God is good all the time, and all the time-God is good!

Rachel DeBacker, Table Leader



Hi! My name is Rachel DeBacker and I'm a stay at home mom to five kiddos - Leila (8), Sophie (6), Emma (4), Bennett (3), and Liam (6). When I'm not chasing them around (which is never), I'm hanging out with my hubby, Devin, of 11 years. I live in Silver Spring but you can find me all over the area dragging my kids along on our next adventure. In my spare time, I like to read (especially for my book club), work on house projects, or sit in utter silence.
