Ayanna is a native of Brooklyn, New York and lived in a couple of places before moving to Atlanta in 2007. She married a really handsome and an all-around awesome fellow in 2008. In 2011, she and that awesome fellow joined Life Center taking advantage of the trainings offered. Driven by her passion for seeing lives transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ, she’s worn many hats over the years serving in ministry. Even with her no-nonsense approach to the things of Lord, she is silly, loves to laugh, and likes burning calories while laughing. One of her fondest memories is serving inmates (not as an inmate – being incarcerated is not part of the testimony) and their families in several capacities at the Fairfax County Detention Center and Pre-Release Center for many years. This has stirred her love even more for the rejected, downcast, and forgotten.

She attended school for a number of years earning everything from a Kindergarten certificate to a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice from The University of Cincinnati. Just when she thought she was finished with school, she went back to earn a Paralegal certificate from Emory University. Ayanna began working in the investment management industry while in high school, but after receiving her undergraduate degree in Administration of Justice with a concentration in Spanish from George Mason University, she chose a career in the legal field working as a Patent Prosecution Legal Assistant. It wasn’t until she moved to Atlanta that she returned to the investment management industry. Since 2010, she has been a Securities and Corporate Paralegal for the same boutique law firm in Midtown.

In her not-so-often down times she enjoys watching THE Ohio State University Buckeyes play football during football season, reading, traveling, going on missions’ assignments abroad, learning to speak other languages, and spending time with cool people especially with, you guessed it, that awesome fellow. He comes 2nd to spending time with the Lord though :-)

“Don’t be so serious ALL of the time. God doesn’t mind His children laughing and having acceptable fun. Let the church say, ‘Go Buckeyes!!!!’ “
