Kenzie grew up in small-town Hinton, Iowa. She graduated from Northwestern College in Orange City with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Reading, Art Education and Coaching. Before teaching at the JAK Academy Kenzie taught second grade at Sioux Falls Christian School.
Why Kenzie works for Mission-Haiti:
"Each time I speak about how I came to teach at the JAK Academy I must speak of God’s faithfulness. He had planned my steps long before. Now I can look back and see God’s hand each step of the way leading and preparing me to teach and serve with Mission-Haiti. God answered prayers, opened doors and amazed me with His faithfulness. I am so thankful for the mission of Sioux Falls Christian, their partnership with Mission-Haiti, and the opportunity I’ve been given to go and teach in a country that God has intentionally laid upon my heart. I am honored to be able to serve God’s children at the JAK Academy and to partner with Mission-Haiti to grow and encourage Christian leaders in Ti Riviere."
