I was born and raised in East Palo Alto, CA. I grew up in a Christian home and gave my life to Christ at an early age. Growing up, serving in my community was always a big passion of mine — from teaching about the Bible, the Gospel, and Jesus in Children's Ministry, to helping with Tech and Sound Ministry.
What led me to Church of the Valley, was a group of young adults who were part of a college Christian ministry called Pulse, at San Jose State University. Pulse later led me to a church plant called Compelled Together, which was run by our Pastor, Tim Reilly! I have been here ever since, and I thank God for this journey and getting to call Church of the Valley my home church. When I am not working or serving, I enjoy playing sports (soccer, basketball and volleyball), watching hockey games (Go Sharks!), discovering new music, and spending time with family and friends.
