I have been privileged to serve on numerous committees and boards in the wider church. I have been a lay deputy to General Convention since 2006. I have served on the Presiding Bishop's Confirmation Committee (Bishop Curry was elected), Ministry Committee and presently serve on the Joint Standing Committee on Nominations. I believe that my experience, acquired insight and skills are well-suited to the continuing challenges of General Convention and the committee work. I have been blessed to witness and learn from so many others in the church, and this has left me well-versed in discernment, listening and dialogue skills which impart to me an inclusive perspective of The Episcopal Church.
