Kaya is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and is thankful for the transformational power of Holy Spirit and her relationship with her loving Father.


Kaya believes that Father God has called her to work alongside Christian educators in different nations. Over the past eight years Kaya, along with a friend and colleague, has trained teachers in the USA, New Zealand, Nepal, Myanmar, and more recently Australia and India. She has been increasingly challenged to consider school and classroom practices of Christian leaders, staff, and educators - and what that experience is like for every staff member, student and family involved. Without a Biblical perspective imbedded and listening to the leading of the Holy Spirit for each situation, portfolio and class, it will not be very different from leaders, staff and educators in public schools. 


For the past 28 years education has been Kaya’s vocation, which included 9 years in public education in South Africa, Taiwan and New Zealand, and 19 years in Christian Education in New Zealand and Australia. Between 2002 - 2019 she lived in New Zealand where she worked as a teacher, Head of Senior School and as the Associate Principal responsible for curriculum oversight and teacher development in Christian Education. In 2020 Kaya was appointed as the Assistant-Lead Regional Principal at the Pacific Group of Christian Schools working with the schools in the group based outside of Sydney.


Currently Kaya is working alongside the staff of St Philips Christian College to train and develop teachers from the St Philips and Pacific Group in "Transformation by Design" in how to embed Biblical perspective into curriculum areas.


Smith Wigglesworth wrote “at the slightest whisper of Holy Spirit, I turn aside to obey”  . . .  and Kaya chooses to do that.
