LiveAble Coaches
Yovani moved to the United States at age 20 and launched a tile business. During this time, Yovani co-founded and co-pastored two Spanish-speaking churches in the San Francisco Bay Area. After 17 years of church leadership, Yovani joined ReWire, a leadership development organization focused on transforming churches from the inside out by equipping members to impact their community, foster missional spiritual formation, and develop a sense of calling.

Aggie’s journey highlighted the need for positive people in her life to succeed.
