Collide Staff

Aleia Gefre

I moved to Bellingham in March 2018 and I absolutely love it here! I have been attending every Collide event since, and it has given me the inspiration and guidance to step closer to Jesus and discover his plans for me. I came to work at Collide in a very unexpected way…, God definitely whispered to me and put a dream inside of me to work here someday, and here I am! I love Jesus, being an Auntie, the outdoors, writing, spending time with loved ones, and encouraging people in my life. I am also a Massage Therapist and am so thankful to walk alongside people in their healing journey!
