I grew up in Houston, Texas before attending college at Louisiana State University where I studied Communications. I have experience working in communication both in the public and nonprofit sectors. In 2018, I felt called to leave the corporate world and go on the World Race, an 11 month mission trip that took me through Africa, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean. After the Race, I attended the Generation 42 Leadership Academy where I interned with Raising a Voice for three months in the summer of 2020. I immediately fell in love with doing outreach in East Knoxville and building relationships with the women in the community. This led my fiancé, James and I to move here full time in February 2021.
I oversee our local ministry working directly with women in our community through the drop-in-center and on outreach. My heart is to walk alongside women to take steps forward and to create a space for them to fully step into who God created them to be. I also split my time as Director of Operations for our ministry partner, Heritage Christian School in Rwanda. I began my work with Heritage in 2019 after meeting pastor Moise in Rwanda while on the World Race.
