Noemi Vega immigrated to the United States from Mexico when she was five years old. She grew up in the serene hills of California’s central coast and chose to continue her studies in the central valley, earning a BA in Psychology from California State University, Fresno. After several years in the field of Christian campus ministry, Noemi decided to pursue an MA in Theology from Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary.
Her academic interests emerged from her ministry with college students and range from recovering borderland (Mexico/U.S.) indigenous epistemologies to deconstructing racialized conceptions of Christologies. Noemi co-authored the book Hermanas: Deepening Our Identity and Growing Our Influence with Natalia Kohn Rivera and Kristy Garza Robinson and regularly receives writing requests for articles and book endorsements.
Noemi is currently a Religious Ethics doctoral student at Southern Methodist University. Her concentration in the field of ethics aims to incorporate race, gender, pedagogic, and hermeneutical studies for a theological framework of healing-from-race. Noemi loves to kickbox, jog, catch up with friends and family, and write in her free time.
