Meet the Authors
Kimberly Burge is Senior Writer/Editor in Bread for the World’s national office, where she has worked for 11 years. She’s also a contributing writer for Sojourners magazine. These are a few of her favorite things: Johnny Cash’s music, traveling (South Africa, Australia, Costa Rica), ginger limeade, E.B. White’s essays. (Give Strunk and White another chance. Seriously.) She’s currently slogging her way through an MFA in nonfiction writing at George Mason University; her thesis is a series of essays on Africa.
Brian P. Duss is the Multimedia Associate for Bread for the World in Washington, DC. He graduated from Messiah College in 1998 with a B.A. in Communications. When he’s not taking photos, shooting video or recording for podcasts he’s playing with his ‘math rock’ band, IBID. Brian is also a board member of We Are Family, a senior services organization in DC.
Holly Hight is the Field Organizer with Bread for the World's California Regional Office. She graduated from Scripps College in 2004 with a B.A. in Religious Studies. Holly is passionate about faith, advocacy, justice and drinking good beer. She loves to cook delicious food and spend time with her husband Joel.
Carlos Navarro volunteers as state coordinator for Bread for the World in New Mexico and has been a member of the organization since 1983. He earned a BA in Journalism/Communications from Loyola University in New Orleans and an MBA in International Trade from Laredo State University (now Texas A&M International University) in Laredo, Texas. Both those degrees are very useful in his job as writer-editor for SourceMex, a weekly newsletter on political and economic issues, published by the Latin America Data Base at the University of New Mexico. In his spare time Carlos grows chile peppers (and enjoys their byproducts) and rides his mountain bike in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains. He is also an avid fan of the New Orleans Saints.
Robin Stephenson is a Field Organizer for the Western Region and is based in Portland, Oregon. After graduating from UC Berkeley and a career as a contract archeologist, Robin began working at Bread for the World as an organizer with the strong belief that justice requires the voice of the people – speaking loudly and in unison. When not community organizing, Robin enjoys Portland’s incredible array of happy hour cuisine. Her favorite things include baseball games on warm nights, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, her kitties and being Goo Goo to her niece and nephew in China.
