Dr. Elacqua has over 20 years of teaching and research experience in the field of higher education, including the roles of research scientist, professor, administrator, industrial/organizational consultant, author, and editor.

Dr. Elacqua’s parents were murdered on October 26, 2005. She lost her baby on December 15, 2006, and her youngest was diagnosed with Autism at age four — all of which provide her with personal experience as a survivor of life’s struggles. That personal experience has resulted in a deeper walk with the Lord and a passion to use her God-given academic credentials and testimony to turn others towards living an abundant life through aligning the daily ups and downs of life with the Bible. She seeks to teach others how to abide in Christ through the journey of life.
