Biography

I am senior at Church Divinity School of the Pacific and a candidate for the priesthood in the Diocese of Massachusetts. I'm passionate about 20's/30's evangelism, lay leadership development, and inter-generational connection in the church. I became Episcopalian through my experience in the Boston Episcopal Service Corps program, Life Together. For me, sermons are the work of the Holy Spirit locating us in the great story of salvation and revealing the ways God is at work in our lives and communities. I especially love when sermons open up familiar stories in a whole new way. 

For now, I live in Berkeley, Cal., with my husband, Aaron, and my dog, Remy, where I love to knit stuffed animals, swing dance, and play board games with friends.
