Her parents are retired educators, her father a professor of music, and her mother a K-12 teacher with a specialty in early childhood development, and family. Growing up in a small Christian university town near Chattanooga, TN, her early life was fully encompassed by Seventh-day Adventist education, Christian friends, and church.
She gave her life to God at age 11, was baptized, becoming a member of the Seventh-day Adventist church. From that point forward she has been an active member of the many local church communities that she has been a part of. Frequently she has been a leader, teacher, and preacher in the churches where she and her family were members.
Randi is actively engaged in supporting, educating, and advocating for LGBT+. The goal of her efforts is to build understanding, and to the degree possible, acceptance of transgender, and LGBT+. Randi is an active advocate, working with several regional and national organizations such as SAGE, HRC, NGPA, The Reformation Project, and of course SDA Kinship.
