“With much joy, I will continue my ministry leading the lifespan faith formation program at Neshoba Unitarian Universalist Church in Cordova, TN. In the near future, I am open to the call of parish and or community ministry and I will be delighted to see what the Universe reveals to me. During my time at Meadville Lombard, I feel like I have been unraveled and woven anew. As a result, my ministry is strong, inspired, and agile. My experiences at MLTS transformed me in ways that I didn’t know were possible. I understand ministry in a much broader and deeper capacity. I am incredibly energized by the vision and practice of collaborative ministry. In the care and challenge of the Meadville community, I learned to succinctly articulate my theology of grace. The calling of my ministry is about helping people find wholeness, to thrive in community, and to work toward the goal of collective liberation. Meadville Lombard prepared me to lead with love."

I feel ready to live into my call to serve in innovative community-based settings and apply my values to the world of work. The faith formation and mentorship I experienced during my internship at All Souls Church Unitarian in Washington, DC was especially affirming and profound. During my time at Meadville, I was both humbled and honored to be the recipient of the 2022 Charles Billings Prize for Excellence in Preaching.

I came to Meadville Lombard Theological School as the first part of my journey towards becoming a Christian Science Military Chaplain. Previously, I was a youth development professional. When I started my MDiv at Meadville, I was working for DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council, a 4-year youth servant leadership development program.
