Our Team

Holly Hallford_edited.jpg
Holly Hallford_edited.jpg

Holly is the Executive Director of Unpack Inc., a nonprofit organization that she served on the founding board in 2016. She became its first and only paid employee in 2020, after working as an office manager for a psychologist’s office for over 13 years. Poppy, those who know her won’t be surprised, despises the business side of business, so having Holly is a must! Holly is a proud Lubbockite and a passionate Red Raider fan. She enjoys watching the football, basketball, and especially the baseball team. Holly married Perry Hallford in 1987 and they have three adult children, who are all married and have their own families. Perry is the chaplain at the Lubbock County Detention Center. Holly and Perry share a vision of living a meaningful life and making a positive impact on others. Unpack is the ideal platform for Holly to pursue this goal.

Cindy is also a proud member of the Kiwanis Club of Lubbock, where she has served for over 9 years.

Jan was born and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico, where she enjoyed a wonderful childhood. She was the youngest of three children but certainly wasn’t spoiled!

Educational Diagnostic Specialist
Dyslexic Therapist


Christine Lewis

Christine, an Air Force brat, experienced frequent moves, changing schools, and a lack of extracurricular activities during her upbringing. She felt like a social misfit and had a lonely childhood. Her abusive narcissistic father was often away due to military training. Once retired, her parents turned to alcohol, intensifying the abuse. She left home at 17, got engaged, and married within a year. Her husband of 43 years passed away in 2017. After 4 years of retirement, Christine rejoined the workforce as the Educational Specialist and Dyslexic Interventionist at Sharp Academy. Christine is now in her 60s and is learning to live within a budget, manage her bills, minimize expenses, and handle things independently. This is one reason she has questioned whether these ladies will be able to relate to her or vice versa. However, Christine does have a generous and compassionate heart for those who struggle, so she happily serves Unpack.

Christine received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from WTSU and her Master of Science degree in Special Education from TTU. She also graduated from the two-year dyslexia training program with the Scottish Rite. After teaching first grade for 15 years, she left the classroom to specialize in literacy acquisition and working with struggling learners. She initiated the district’s Dyslexia Program for Lubbock-Cooper ISD and nurtured it for 10 years before retiring to take care of her ailing husband.

Christine is very active in the Llano Estacado Emmaus Community and Kairos Outside. She also serves on individual Care Teams at the New Legacy Home for Women, most of whom have been incarcerated and/or addicts.
