Staff Members

We currently have four part-time paid staff members involved in administering the activities at Bella. The Executive Director is the key person guiding all the activities at Bella, including client services, development, and fundraising. Two Nurse Sonographers provide early pregnancy medical services to clients including pregnancy testing and Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound, and the Administrative Assistant assists the Executive Director and is in charge of bookkeeping.

Executive Director

Roxie Johnson is the Executive Director and is in charge of all the day-to-day activities at Bella. Roxie started at Bella in 1988 as a client advocate and became Executive Director in 1989. Roxie and her husband, John, have four grown children and seven grandchildren. Roxie’s spare time is spent with family activities, reading, sewing, and participating in Bible studies. Her commitment to Bella is evidenced in her hard work and determination to be an example of God’s love and wisdom to all she counsels and comes in contact with at Bella.

Nurse Sonographers

Sherry Martin started working for Bella as a nurse in September 2015. She’s originally from Texas but has lived in South Dakota for the past ten years. Sherry and her husband Nick live in Spearfish with their four beautiful children: Trent, Kaylee, Adyson, and Brexly. Sherry also works on the Labor and Delivery floor at the Spearfish Hospital PRN. Next to God and her children she says that pregnant mommas are a passion of hers, and she thoroughly enjoys working with women and babies. Sherry is excited about her role as Bella’s nurse sonographer, and in her own words: “It’s exciting and rewarding to be a vessel for God’s work. I look forward to serving our community in whatever way I can.”
