Prior to becoming a priest, I had a career in marketing and management in the insurance industry, during which I acquired many skills that inform and amplify my ordained ministry. I currently serve as an associate dean at the School of Theology at Sewanee, a position I began after six years as a parish priest. My work now focuses on formation of church leaders, especially planning orientation for new seminarians and supporting their overall experience. I provide pastoral care, and collaborate with others as needed to ensure an environment of seamless care for the students. I have also enjoyed serving the wider church as the National Chaplain for the Junior Daughters of the King, and as a delegate of TEC to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. I have experience in event planning and project management, and I have served on the boards of directors of numerous non-profit agencies. If elected, it would be my honor to serve on this committee, and with God’s help, to contribute to the mission of the Church in the world.
