Aubrey has spent the last 10 years living, studying, and teaching in Israel. These experiences have deeply shaped her approach to biblical literature, developing an appreciation for Jewish and eastern Christian approaches to Scripture and faith. Her passion lies in bringing the Hebrew Bible to life through historical, geographical, and cultural context, storytelling, and adventurous exploration. A firm believer in the value of experiential learning, she leads frequent trips to Israel and Jordan to introduce students to the lands of the Bible and the modern communities of the Middle East.
