    I am a single mom with two grown children, my son Jacob is 25 and my daughter Kennedy is 23. I love to go camping and sit as the current Lt. Governor for the Finger Lakes Division of Kiwanis. I am a second career pastor, receiving a call to pastoral ministry while serving as a youth and Christian Education Director at Aldersgate UMC in Greece, NY.  I completed my MDiv at Northeastern Seminary while serving at the Honeoye Falls United Methodist Church. My focus is to bring families into the church so that they may grow and find salvation together. I am a down to earth preacher as I always bring a connection to the church, individual, or living life today through the biblical text.

    With more than 100,000 members, United Methodists of Upper New York comprises of more than 675 local churches and New Faith Communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our vision is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
