A New England native raised in First Parish, Concord, Massachusetts, I currently live in Brooklyn, New York, surrounded by a vibrant community of friends and family, serving as the Assistant Minister for Congregational Life at the Unitarian Church of All Souls, New York City. I am a joyful, creative and curious person who loves the vibrant fast pace of the city, enjoying the bounty of arts and culture found everywhere from the subway to Carnegie Hall. When I’m not at church, you can find me exploring the sanctuaries of New York City: city streets filled with music venues, art galleries, yoga studios, farmer’s markets and coffee shops. While I’m extremely social, I enjoy my time in solitude and nature as well, taking frequent trips out of the city to be with family and travel. Adventures to new places invigorate me as much as returning to places of comfort and memories. Above all, my vocational life is grounded in personal and spiritual transformation. I am excited by the possibilities of serving the Unitarian Universalist faith for a lifetime. I feel grounded in that strong sense of vocation and invigorated by long-term commitment. For me, ministry is about the continual spiritual discernment required to live a truly authentic life. It’s about listening for a call and following my heart. I have listened attentively, and know that my call to Neighborhood has emerged from this place of faith.
