Born in California and raised in Iowa, Rakhi found her way to Michigan 22 years ago after graduating with her Master's Degree from Texas A&M University. She has been married to Timothy for 12 of those years, and is a mother of three. A convert from Hinduism, her greatest joy is speaking light into darkness and encouraging others to discover the love of Christ amid the beauty and gifts they possess. She uses the varied pieces of her life as her inspiration in ministry, and in her "free time" as an artist, writer, and occasional speaker.
Rakhi's background includes working at Oakland University before entering professional ministry. As a lay ecclesial minister, she has served as Spiritual Coordinator for Mary's Mantle, Associate Director of Youth/Campus/Young Adult Ministry for the Archdiocese of Detroit, Director of Genesis Young Adult Ministry in Oakland County, and on the Executive Board for the National Catholic Young Adult Ministry Association in addition to working in parish communications.
At Guardian Angels, you'll find Rakhi working with our youth, young adults, young families, digital ministry, community outreach, and communications.
