I am life-long Unitarian Universalist, originally from New England, and have been a UU minister for over nineteen years. Before moving to Chicago, I was the Interim Minister for The UU Congregation of Columbia, South Carolina. I have also served as Interim Minister for the UU congregations in: Little Rock, Arkansas; Terre Haute, Fort Wayne, and South Bend, Indiana; Fredericksburg, Virginia; and Pittsfield, Maine. I have especially enjoyed my work in the areas of UU Religious Education for children and youth; church finances, fundraising, and capital campaigns; theme-based worship services; Social Justice and community organizing; and advising about the search for a settled minister. Some social justice causes I have advocated for include: gay rights and gay marriage; dismantling institutional racism; workers’ rights; standing against gun violence; and understanding and tolerance for religious minorities. I was the UU minister in Winchendon, Massachusetts for seven years. I have also provided support for people who have some disabilities, but also many gifts and graces. I received my Master of Divinity degree from Bangor Theological Seminary in May of 2001, and have also worked as a paralegal.
