Marka graduated in 2016 with a Pastoral Ministry Degree from Newman University. Her quest to serve the Lord has taken her to participate in the Spiritual Director Formation Program. Currently, she is in her last year of formation through the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. In order that others may come to hear the still small voice, Marka has been a part of developing a retreat facility that offers a space close to OKC. The hope is that when others have a day or two, there is a place not far away for prayer and rest. It is in offering programs through The Healing House, that these programs have been developed.
