Moorea is originally from Fort Wayne, and she returned after graduating from Taylor University, where she met her husband Chris. She graduated with a degree in music education and a concentration in special education. Moorea was an intern at the Academy for two summers before getting hired as an Academy Coordinator! She is a huge marching band nerd and loves to go to DCI competitions (her favorite corp is the Bluecoats!). In her free time she enjoys reading, watching grey’s anatomy for the 100th time, and swimming.
