Mrs. Jones was born in Brazil to parents who were both teachers in SDA schools. She grew up very involved in the ministry in schools, always active in music groups such as choirs, bands/orchestra and hand-bells. She has two sisters, one living in Orlando, FL and one living in Brazil closer to her parents. Mrs. Jones studied Physical Therapy in Brazil and she finished her class work in Choir Conducting at Andrews University.
While at Andrews, she met Blake Jones, a Seminary student who today is the Pastor of the Orangevale SDA Church.
