I am a United Church of Christ (UCC) minister serving as the pastor of Westfield Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in Danielson, Connecticut. Westfield is an historic church with a heart for serving its community. Check out the good things happening at Westfield on their Facebook Page.
I graduated from Elon University in Elon, North Carolina in 2007 with a degree in Religious Studies. I then enrolled at Candler School of Theology at Emory University where I graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2010.
I was raised a United Methodist, a church I loved for many reasons and a church I left for many reasons. I found the United Church of Christ when I started at Elon. The church across the parking lot from my freshman dorm was Elon Community Church, the church where my ordination would take place seven years later. While at Elon, I discovered a denomination that celebrated its deep theological and denominational roots while lifting up the beauty of our inherent diversity as children of God.
I was ordained in the UCC in 2010 and began my first UCC call in October of 2012. I was installed as Pastor and Teacher of Westfield in May of 2013.
I have a passion for visual worship, web design, and stoles–all of which are often topics of my writing here (along with lots of topics).
A Southerner at heart, I now live in Northeastern Connecticut with my husband, Greg.
