Dear Women’s Ordination Conference Members and Supporters,

I’m joyful to start work this week as WOC’s new Office Manager based in Washington D.C. It’s an honor to get to work for a courageous, visionary organization advocating for women’s ordination and for a more feminist, anti-racist, and accountable Catholic Church.

I’m originally from Oregon where both of my parents are retired ministers in the United Methodist Church. All of my life, my mother has nurtured inspired me with her extraordinary love, wisdom, and leadership in our family and in the church – so working toward women’s ordination is also personal for me.

Outside of my time with WOC, I currently serve as a volunteer leader with three newer organizations: the U.S.-Africa Network -which fosters relationship and solidarity among progressive activists from the U.S. and the African continent, 99Rise which organizes civil disobedience to get money out of politics, and the D.C. chapter of Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ) which organizes white people to participate in the multiracial struggle for racial and economic justice. I also love to sing and am part of a women’s social justice a cappella ensemble.

If I can be of assistance with donations, newsletters, WOC materials, or other inquiries, please feel free to be in touch with me by e-mail, phone, or mail. I look forward to getting to know you!
