Jaleesa has been serving in both church and para-church ministry since college specifically in the areas of intentional personal development for those answering the call to full-time vocational ministry and the discipleship of college women, young professional women and female worship leaders. Along with her role in the counseling center Jaleesa serves with Austin Stone Worship as the Director of Women’s Worship.

Jaleesa has a desire to see God’s glory displayed in the brokenness of this world and to see God’s people encounter Him in a deeper way through the surrender of their hearts and lives. Her passion is to see lives transformed by the Lord’s unfailing grace and hope-filled truths as people seek to grow in relationship with Jesus.

Jaleesa lives in Central Austin and, in her spare time, enjoys exploring the city, good coffee, kayaking and reading.
