Jessica Sifuentes is the Director of Operations for the Southwest Coalition for Life. She’s been married to her high school sweetheart for 32 years, and considers herself very fortunate to have been able to homeschool their 4 beautiful children. Jessica always had a passion for food, which led her to open her own catering business which she successfully operated for 11 years. It was during that time that she felt a call from the Lord which ultimately redirected her efforts. Her newfound passion is to help women discover who they are in Christ so that ultimately, they will choose life not only for their baby but for themselves.
Dr. Gutierrez is a board-certified OBGYN and enjoys serving the El Paso community as an El Paso native. Growing up, her mom volunteered with Project Gabriel to lend support to women in crisis pregnancies. Her parents both cultivated her Catholic faith and the ideals of Social Justice. We strive to offer hope to women and men in their loneliest moment facing an abortion decision. Her two babies and her husband are her biggest blessings!
Now in Las Cruces, Dr. Cuevas is a native El Pasoan and UTEP grad. He is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician, a Devout Catholic husband and father, and an entrepreneur providing consultation services for Type-2 diabetes reversal as well as ongoing medical practice. Dr. Cuevas considers himself humbled to be able to contribute to the Coalition’s mission in any way.
Venita has been a Registered Nurse for 15+ years, primarily working in dialysis and public health specialties and currently serving as an RN case manager with Arch Care Consultants. In July of 2020, Venita felt God leading me to assist in pro-life ministry through the Anglican’s for Life Chapter at her church and discovered the Coalition’s need for a Nurse Manager as part of our Mobile Medical Unit, for which Venita is currently training to provide ultrasounds. Since then, she says, “I have been blessed to work with such a Godly group of people at the Coalition.” Venita has a passion for missions and fulfilled her dream of completing her DTS with Youth with a Mission in 2013. In her free time, she loves to read and participates in two reading groups, and also enjoys traveling to US National Parks to experience God’s beauty and majesty.
