Trustees’ Profiles

Our Trustees have a diverse set of skills, interests and passions.

Phyllis Sipos, Class of 2019

Looking for a church with a rich history, Phyllis chose Good Shepherd in the early 70’s, where she has served the parish in multiple ways ever since.  She also raises funds with the Daughters of the Nile that support Shriners Hospitals for Children.  She is the former owner of InterSecurties, Inc., and brings to the Board experience as a broker/dealer and an investment advisor.

Gifts: Service to Church, Concern for People, Creativity

Shirl Ahrens, Class of 2020

As a retired college professor, Shirl attributes a now revitalized parish to “a welcoming church family, leadership, new members’ energy, and outreach ministries that give hope to those in need.” She has been a Trustee for the past 17 years and looks forward to a time that the financial strength of the parish will result in “a zero-dependence on the Endowment Fund.”

Gifts: Commitment to Service, Analytical Skills, Honesty

Carolyn Hughes, Class of 2020

Carolyn is a Chartered Financial Analyst with a BBA in Finance. Her 33 year career involved managing operating, retirement, and endowment funds for corporate, state and municipal entities. She finds “great joy in the Bells of Hope” and singing in the choir, while also finds time to serve the boaters of Northern Pinellas through the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Gifts: Personal Integrity, Responsibility, Compassion

Robert Bellavance, Class of 2021

Bob’s career spanned 38 years as CEO of various chambers of commerce, including Dunedin’s.

He is now on Dunedin’s Committees on Aging and Public Safety, and Peace Park Task Force where he hopes to help make this project a positive, long-term solution.
