Kristin is a graduate of a discipleship program under Sonia Rodriguez with an additional 9-months of Internship experience as an Administrative Assistant for Ms Sonia. Kristin has been with Legacy since its beginnings in 2017 working with Public Relations and conducting student interviews. Kristin has a passion for what this program can do for others, since she herself has been so profoundly effected by the leadership and spiritual guidance of Ms Sonia. Kristin is able to relate to prospective students and encourage them with how this program is changing lives and give them hope that they too can experience these life changes.
Kristin's passion is to see souls saved and for these women to escape from the depths of darkness, to know God and what true love is, and to experience the greatness of the life God has planned and destined for them.
Aimee came to Texas, all the way from Connecticut, in 2019 just to be a student of Legacy's Recovery Program. At that time she was not only introduced to her loving Father, but she also finally experienced true freedom in her life - freedom from past hurts, wounds, offenses and addictions which were keeping her tied down. While at Legacy Aimee also discovered she had a call on her life, a call and desire to help other women overcome their past traumas, offenses, and hardships while bringing them into relationship with the Lord. After Graduation Aimee was accepted into the Legacy Internship Program and quickly proved herself to be not only faithful, but also a huge asset to the ministry. Aimee has now officially relocated to Texas and entered into full-time ministry at Legacy as the Administrative Assistant where she assists Ms Sonia with the daily running of the ministry, as well as, teaching and mentoring the students of Legacy Center.
Aimee is also concurrently attending West Coast Bible College (online) and pursuing a Bachelors of Theology Degree with a Business and Ministry Specialization.
