The very first time I walked in the doors of Rock Spring, sometime in 1995, I felt that I had come home. Having grown up in the Congregational/UCC Church in Maine, the sanctuary felt familiar. The warmth of the congregation and their commitment to social justice told me this was the place for me.
I jumped in with both feet and served on the Christian Education board several times, chaired the Personnel Board and Church Council, taught Sunday School, taught the Our Whole Lives program for middle schoolers, and led the Fifth Sundays Task Force. I eventually became the full-time Director of Faith Formation, guiding and developing faith formation programs and ministries for all ages, a position I held for more than 5 years. More recently, I have felt called to transition to a ministry of administration, bringing my gifts for both seeing the “big picture” and attending to small details to managing Rock Spring’s campus and ministries.
My wife and I parent four teenagers/young adults, and renew ourselves by heading to Maine for a few weeks each summer to our small family cabin on a quiet lake close to Acadia National Park. In addition to sitting on the dock watching the loons, I love to cook, read, take naps, kayak, and play with our beloved dog, Moose.
My preferred pronouns are she/her.
