 My spiritual gifts include the capacity to facilitate purposeful and inclusive dialog while moving groups forward with decisions and actions. I have an “outside of the perimeter” perspective with parish and diocesan experiences. Parish experiences include leading Christian Formation and Strategic Planning Commissions as well as serving on vestry, personnel, PCOM, and stewardship committees. Current diocesan service includes helping revitalize the Diocesan Youth Commission and designing leadership development activities for youth/young adult leaders.

As UGA Associate Professor Emerita of Insect Genetics, graduate of EFM, and grant writer, I see an integrated, interdependent world where “drawing the circle wider” makes perfect sense. I served in the choir, on three vestries as Junior and Senior Wardens, as Chairperson of Stewardship, Outreach, Creation Keepers when awarded GIPL’s “Congregation of the Year”, Appleton Executive Committee under Missioner Julie Groce, and President of the St. Francis Arts Center Board, a 501(c)(3) community outreach.

 My undergraduate experience at St. John’s College taught me the value of a Liberal Arts education. My daughter received her AB from the University of the South in Philosophy, and I was able to observe close hand the type of liberal arts education that it offers. It is my ambition to see that the quality of that education is maintained and strengthened, and that all of the programs offered by the University maintain the excellence for which the University is famous.
