Mrs. Hunt spent her childhood in Saint Johns, Michigan. After high school, she graduated from Alma College in 2009. Shimea has spent the bulk of her career practicing medicine as a Physician Assistant. She came to LCS from ProMedica Physician Group where she learned how to love people in a provider role and support people in very difficult storms of life. When asked about her experiences, Shimea said, “God has always called me into a role of leadership and empathy (my mother claims since childhood). In 2015-2016, I took an adjunct faculty position at Eastern Michigan University. It was then when I first felt the calling to teach. God closed the door to teaching at the college level when the president of that program stepped down. Since that time, I was not pursuing teaching at any level other than on an individual level to my patients. In June of 2018, God clearly called me to teach, and specifically at LCS. One Sunday, I had a nagging voice inside telling me to look for employment at LCS. After leaving church, I told my husband, who said I ought to listen to God. The next Monday, I was able to communicate with Tom Durbin and the rest is history. So although I have not been educating pupils formally since 2016, I have been practicing the art of education daily in my physician assistant role. God has prepared my heart to move into education full time and I am so excited to be a part of preparing these young hearts to move into the world and share their light.” Shimea and her husband, Eddie, have three children and they attend Grace Point Evangelical Free Church.
