What a gift it is to be a hope-filled traveler on this journey called “life!” I am the mother of four and ordained minister of the United Church of Christ! I have a heart that bursts wide open with a passion for the work of communities and the local church… I was called to pastoral ministry as a teen and I enter into pastoral ministry with over 20 years of experience in serving families and children and ministering to others. The people I have met along the way, have inspired and shaped my ministry in profound ways! I have been blessed to meet some incredible humans along the way!
I am passionate about the stories of God’s people. I enter into this vocation lovingly molded by a faith that is richly supported by stories of promise, ancient times, ancient peoples, current culture, true love, motherhood, relationships, loss, healing and forgiveness. These stories are gifts and they are treasures that have fueled my passion for serving Christ’s Church as a pastor. I continuously find myself falling in love with the way that God takes the stories of our past, of our present and of our future and weaves them into the fabric of creation and of existence. I am passionate about the way God’s love is woven into our lives and expressed through the work of communities. I am passionate about sharing the good news of God’s love as expressed in our stories!
I have joyfully meandered and served churches all around New England in many different capacities; planning and leading worship, administering the sacraments, preaching, supply pulpit, sabbatical coverage, and ministering to families with children and youth. I am passionate about the way in which God speaks to us through community. I believe that God’s call to us is also experienced and understood through the listening to the whispers of our very own hearts.
