Keila grew up in the mountain region of Chiapas, Mexico. She is the daughter of a pastor/missionary couple. Her parents provided a wonderful example in their passion and heart for missions, and were the major influence in her life. Keila gave her heart to Christ at a youth camp when she was nine years old, and declares that was the best decision of her life!
Keila majored in Special Education and worked as a teacher for eight years. While teaching, she felt the call of God to enter into children's ministries, and is currently enrolled at the Nazarene Theological Seminary. She served as a volunteer missionary for two years at the Church of the Nazarene in Panama.
In her free time, Keila likes to walk and hike trails, cook, and travel. She is also a major soccer fan!
Her favorite Bible verse is Psalm 27:1, "Light, space, zest - that's God! So, with him on my side, I'm afraid of no one and nothing." MSG
