Term: 2016-2019

I have been a member of ERUUF since the early 1990s. Jonathan and I discovered UUism in Albuquerque when we were searching for a church to attend with our baby daughter. From the first service we knew we were "home". That baby is now 30 and we are still devoted UUs!

I am currently part of the Beloved Conversations group and a member of an affiliation small group called the LuLus (UUs who completed Legacy Leadership training). I served on the Nominating Committee and taught RE. I believe deeply in the inherent worth and dignity of all people and I am proud that ERUUF works hard to be a welcoming place of worship. I am excited to be offered a chance to serve on the board of ERUUF and bring facilitation and teamwork skills to the job.

I am a family physician and educator at Duke. I enjoy gardening, hiking, biking to work, canoeing and learning to cook vegan recipes.  We have 2 adult children in the DC area and 2 granddogs.
