Athena is a mom of two sons, Cornell and Isaac. All three love and serve the Lord with gladness.
Athena and Isaac live in Kansas City, MO, and Cornell recently moved to Washington, near his girlfriend, who is in British Columbia, Canada.

Athena graduated from Texas A&M with an international business degree and quickly learned that her heart was more about serving people. She started working at her church and eventually became the office manager. After a few years in that role, she transitioned to work with a Bible translation organization in the development department.

In 2021, she felt the Lord calling her to full-time missions in Kansas City. She has been in ministry for over 12 years, serving in various roles, but always with whole-heartedness.

Both Cornell and Isaac have a solid and growing relationship with the Lord. This gives great delight to their mom’s heart and one of her life verses is 3 John 1:4, “I have no greater joy than this—to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
