I have been involved with the Swedenborgian Church for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I attended Blairhaven Summer Camp in Duxbury, Massachusetts, participated in youth league retreats as a teen, and was confirmed as a member of the Bridgewater Church at the age of eighteen. I have been attending the Fryeburg New Church Assembly for forty years—spending the past fifteen of those as an active member of the Board of Directors. In September of 2019, I was contacted to fill an unexpired term on the General Council and was honored to be asked. Since then, I have become the editor of the Messenger, been an active ex officio member of the Standing Committee for Communication and Information, part of the planning committee for Virtual Convention (2020 and 2021), and serve on a variety of sub-committees. My husband, Jason, and I live in Massachusetts near Cape Cod with our two children, Serena and Nate, and our three cats. I look forward to continuing to serve the denomination on the General Council.
