Daria grew up in the West Island of Montreal (Beaconsfield) and left home at 17 to pursue an education in Christian ministry. In 2005, she graduated from Heritage Bible College with a Bachelor of Religious Education in Counselling. In 2010, while working with 24-7 Prayer (Canada and International), she completed her M.A in Global Urban Ministry, studying the social effects of globalization and urbanization and how churches could better meet the needs of changing cities. 


Daria began working part-time with the West Island Network in 2017 with a heart to see more unity among West Island churches and greater community impact through churches collaborating both with one another and the community. She now co-facilitaties the Poverty Reduction and Social Inclusion round table in her neighbourhood and works with many churches and community organizations to help create lasting change.


Daria Nardozza is married to Matthew and together they have one son, Gabriel. When not working, she gets to enjoy mom life with her 5-year-old son, playing soccer and volunteering at his co-op pre-school being some of the best parts. She also enjoys all things food, health/fitness and hiking mountains with her husband.
