Family Pastor

Kyanna is a loud and proud Jersey girl (we don’t pump our gas– we pump our fist!) who loves serving and supporting children and their families. She first was introduced to New Haven County when she moved to Hamden to pursue her bachelor’s in Sociology and Masters of Arts in Teaching- Elementary Education from Quinnipiac University.

Kyanna showed up to ECV in the fall of 2015 and has been serving ever since (can we please bring Brunch group back, folks?!) A New Haven educator, Kyanna’s teaching career began with an internship year at Fair Haven K-8 followed by two years as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher at Engineering & Science University Magnet School (ESUMS).

Kyanna is passionate about working with children and families to develop the community in which they live through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. She is a crazy cat lady whose camera roll is filled with hundreds of pictures of her two cats and two dogs. She devours books at an alarming rate and will beat you in Mario Kart any day of the week.
