With a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Science in Education, Keturah pursued a career serving people in the fields of social services, family literacy, and adult education. Her experience spans from working as an advocate in a domestic violence shelter to a family support worker and literacy instructor in the capital city of New Jersey to a teacher and tutoring entrepreneur serving teens/adults improving their basic skills after becoming unemployed, displaced, incarcerated, etc.
Formally accepting the call to teach, preach, and counsel with the Bible in 2009, she received intensive mentorship support at her local church and attended Jameson School of Ministry (2011-2013) until she gave birth to her daughter. Keturah later became certified in both Bible Based Trauma Healing (Trauma Healing Institute) and the SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts) Assessment. She has also completed professional development training in Emotional Management (Center for Pastoral Counseling) and Grief + Loss Coaching (American Association of Christian Counselors). Keturah continues to actively teach + preach at her local church and other online events (due to COVID-19).
Keturah’s call to “proclaim and encourage” is greatly impacted by her personal experience of redemption and healing by her Lord + Savior Jesus Christ as she hit “rock bottom” in low self-worth, confusion, unhealthy relationships, and a lack of focus years ago.
She still testifies that if it had not been for God, she would have gone down a “different path.” Her service to others is passionate and embraces the fervent love of God towards people who are hurting, broken, grieving, traumatized, and/or marginalized.
Two of Keturah’s greatest and most important roles are being a wife to Jason for the last 14 years and a mom to Jordyn, a “spunky” First Grader.
