She holds a certificate of pastoral ministry from Hillsong Leadership College as well as a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree from New York University.

Her life is marked by building family, faith, church, and community. Her heart is to see every person living in the God-calling and purposes for which they were created. She lives in Phoenix with her two beautiful kids, her husband Alex and Goldendoodle Pearl. They pray that they will never stop celebrating life and all it’s beautiful twists and turns.
