With a background in the non-profit, education, and financial management fields, Aly joins her colleagues at Ministry Architects with a unique blend of skills. Her time as an AmeriCorps inner-city teacher, along with travels around the globe, ignited a passion for larger than life ideas and took her faith journey to new heights. She carried this enthusiasm to a boutique wealth management firm and, after more than a decade of success, decided it was high time to listen to God’s gentle calling and jumped into ministry work full-time. She’s been serving churches on staff as a Teacher, as the Director of Children’s, Youth and Family Ministries, and as a Development Director ever since! Aly completed her Bachelor of Arts degree from Fairfield University and her Master in Education from the University of Virginia. She’s loved using her expertise to help ministry partners and friends in the not-for-profit world tackle audacious challenges through a multi-industry lens. As a strategy and development consultant, her latest passion project involves social enterprise and ending human trafficking. (All in a day’s work!) The mom to three fabulous daughters, Aly and her husband love this wondrously messy, grace-filled journey.
