Sierra is a proud Biola alumni, former student body president, and live entertainment/events professional.
She has been actively working in the entertainment and live events industry since working on the talent production team at E! News Entertainment.

In 2018 she made history at Biola with her running mate Katie Davis becoming the first woman pair to be elected as student body president and vice president. Her greatest joy during her time at Biola was getting to work with women, student leaders and first-generation college students like herself to help navigate the unique college experience each one holds.
Sierra currently resides in Brea, California, but considers herself to have three homes in Hawaii, Sacramento and Texas because she loves spending any of her free time adventuring to see her three best friends where they live.
