Karina grew up a believer, but made the decision to follow Jesus while away at college when a friend invited her to church.
Karina has always had a heart for children, her nurturing spirit was recognized as a child when she was referred to as the friend who was a “little mom.” She graduated from San Diego State University with a focus in Child and Family Development. She has had the privilege of working with children and families in various settings including in-home, therapy, and center-based care.
Meeting new people, partnering with families and serving alongside our amazing team of Kids Ministry volunteers are what she loves most about her role. Karina is passionate about children learning who Jesus is and growing in relationship with Him.
Karina helps coordinate Kids Ministry volunteers at Reality. She works closely with Anna to plan fun and engaging events for Reality Kids and volunteers.
Oxnard is where Karina lives with her husband and three kids. She enjoys baking, reading, spending time with family and hanging out at the beach.
