Hi there --- perhaps a word about myself might be a good place to start. I have served as an Episcopal priest since 2003, following a twelve year career in the Central Vermont non-profit human services sector where I achieved recognition in program development for youth, leadership development and administration. As a priest, I have served as a local congregational pastor, a certified interim priest for congregations who find themselves in the wilderness of leadership transition, a supply priest and currently as co-chaplain to retired clergy in the Diocese of Vermont. I have also been doing some book reviews for Anglican Theological Review.  My interest in scriptural storytelling is expressed in my preaching, retreat workshops, writing and pastoral conversations. A growing interest in elder care issues and the church has been sparked by walking with my parents through their own search for a "new normal" that was recently included as a chapter in my first published book: The Light Shines Through: Our Stories Are God's Story, available at Church Publishing Inc. (churchpublishing.org/), Hopkins Bookshop (trinityshelburne.org/bookshop), and Amazon.com. I am a graduate of Union Theological Seminary/NYC, have an Advanced Theological Studies certificate from Episcopal Divinity School, and currently live with my husband, Ed, in Monkton, Vermont.
