Alanna grew up in a Christian home in central Pennsylvania and benefited from both homeschool and Christian school education. She attended Clarks Summit University in Pennsylvania where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biblical Counseling and had the opportunity to begin some graduate level coursework. She met her husband, Dan Beaulieu, in college, and after building a friendship for those four years and dating long distance for another two, they got married when she made the move up to New Hampshire in 2017.
God stretched her outside her comfort zone of early childcare for a decade to become a youth leader in MVBC's Teen Ministry, where Dan serves as Youth Pastor.
Some additional passions include watching movies while Dan critiques them, exploring new places, trying new food, and hanging out with their cat, Skittles.
