Lianna has lived in Pennington area with her parents all her life. She was educated at home and while a young girl came to a saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. She is a graduate of Hopewell Valley High School and Mercer County Vocational School with a focus on Business/Office and Applications Technology.

Lianna cherishes her time spent in  Bible study. She receives spiritual encouragement from the faith community at Hope Presbyterian Church and from the non-profit organization, Ability Tree, who minister to people with disabilities and their families. She enjoys piano/vocal music lessons and listening to Christian radio. Other interests include reading, puzzles and hiking. 

It was a childhood dream to work at a church, and Lianna is grateful for the opportunity at Hope Presbyterian. She also works at Howell Living History Farm, where she can don a period dress and celebrate her passion for history, farming, and the great outdoors.
