Faith Swan is an accountant with over 25 years of experience, both in the private and public sectors. For the past 7 years, she has been a senior accountant with a health care firm in Georgia. Prior to that tenure, Faith worked with other entities in the area of financial statement preparation and assisted with audits. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Pace University in New York.
Faith is a strong believer in giving back to the community and gives freely of her time. For example, she organized a community diabetes walk event to bring awareness to the effects of the disease and raised funds for the American Diabetes Association. Similarly, she has volunteered with the Georgia Ovarian Alliance for the past two years during their annual fundraiser. Additionally, she has volunteered at The Monastery of the Holy Spirit, where she served in various roles, helping as needed. Recently, Faith was a leader of a local wellness program, which supports individuals in their wellness journey. She has always been an advocate for educational program enrichment, so when her children were younger, she provided mentorship and started a tutoring program for middle school children. Her efforts were highlighted in the local newspaper as part of her outreach in the community in an article about the local diabetes walk.
Faith Swan is the widow of Christ K. Swan, a career fire inspector, and firefighter, who worked with the Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Fire Department in Marietta, Georgia for 29 years. Chris and Faith are proud parents of 4 children and two grandchildren. Faith hopes that she will honor her husband’s legacy and memory by giving back to the community he faithfully served. And in doing so, continue to show the world how to be of service to others, how to love unconditionally, and how to be a good neighbor, just like the mantra her husband lived by.
Faith and family have been the beneficiary of the resources of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and she works to continue its mission to provide services to the families of fallen fire heroes. As such, she has successfully completed the Peer Support Training, a program offered through the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to support outreach to other fire hero families. Faith volunteers monthly to write remembrance cards to the fire hero families during the anniversary month of the death of their firefighter. This is part of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Remembrance Program.
