New Director of Human Resources: Shauntae Sourie

Shauntae Sourie recently became a part of the MACU family as the university’s new Human Resources Director.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, Sourie has been in the human resources industry for almost two decades. She recently decided to follow her dreams
and “take a leap of faith to become a Human Resources Director.” Sourie said she loves being in human resources because it allows her to care for people in a different and unique way.

“I love being able to establish relationships with people and helping them through their hardest times,” she said.

She said she’s excited for the opportunities awaiting her at MACU — especially the ability to openly share her devout faith with others.

“I felt like this was going to be a great opportunity for me to learn how to love people more and grow as a person and Christian,” Sourie said. “Here at MidAmerica Christian University, I feel like I have the opportunity to just let my spirit flourish. When God leads me to do things, I won’t question Him.”

Sourie’s faith is very important to her, as well as giving back to her community. She also serves as the First Vice President for her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Incorporated, Sigma Sigma Omega Chapter. Sourie and her team set out five new targets or goals for their sorority each year. This year, one of those goals happens to be getting students ready for the college admissions process with their program #CAP.

In her free time, Sourie said she loves making memories with her family or playing board games. She also loves spending time with her college sweetheart, Eric.
