ABOUT ME

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I am an ordinated minster in the United Church of Christ as well as a certified Christian Educator in the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ. I graduated from Keene State College in 2003 where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Lighting and Set. Thereafter, I worked at Mystic Scenic Studios before joining the staff at Second Congregational Church of Attleboro, Massachusetts as the Christian Education Director. It was while on staff at Second Congregational Church that I experienced my call to become a Certified Christian Educator and into Pastoral Ministry. I completed my field education at the First Christian Congregational Church, UCC in Swansea, Massachusetts in 2017. After graduating from Boston University’s School of theology with her Masters in Divinity in January of 2019 I became the Interfaith Chaplain at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Massachusetts, while also being the Pastoral intern at First Congregational Church (Oldtown), UCC in North Attleboro, Massachusetts from June 2018 until receiving my first call at First Congregational Church of Spencer in October 2019. 

 

As I enter into ministry the core value that drives my call to ministry is my belief that all humans are created in the image of God and as such all humans are created equal, no matter their gender identity, marital status, race or age. I believe that Jesus Christ, the son of God, was sent to teach us how to live in God’s New Kingdom. When we ground ourselves in the still speaking voice of God, through biblical teachings, the teachings and example set by Jesus Christ and our own connection to God moving within and around us, we can continue the work of Jesus Christ. Christ calls us to create a world where no one person can hold dominion over another. The world we are called to create is one of opportunity, where the talents necessary to do the work are spread among all people and each person has equal opportunity to contribute. As a Christians I believe that we are called to seek ways to create the opportunity for everyone to live into our full potential, as given to us by God.
