Anna was born and raised in Manhattan, Kansas where she was homeschooled along with her seven siblings. Moving to Jackson at eighteen was a big change, and while “home” will always be the wide-open prairie, the community she has found in Jackson has made her grow to love the city.

She is currently a junior at Belhaven University pursuing a B.A. in Intercultural Studies and a minor in Biblical Studies. She is involved in RUF and has a big heart for loving the people around her practically and spiritually. She longs to see the multiethnic, cross-cultural, multi-lingual Church grow and flourish on earth, sees herself in some kind of ministry after college, and is excited to pursue this through the children’s ministry at Redeemer.
