I’ve been serving here in Austin since I graduated from Yale Divinity School in 2013. My first call was as the chaplain at Trinity Episcopal School, where I fell in love with ministry to young people. I decided to move into parish ministry next and was called to St. Michael’s Episcopal Church where I served as the Associate Rector until being called in 2019 to plant a new church in South Austin. Alas, the pandemic proved to be a stumbling block too great for our tiny community of Church of the Incarnation to overcome, and we celebrated our final service this spring. It is my great joy, however, that the end of one ministry means the beginning of a new one, and I am excited to be joining you in the fall. I bring with me a love of Jesus, a passion for theology and the mystic tradition, and a commitment to building spiritual community with the many resources of our Anglican tradition.
My husband, Eli, and I just celebrated our 22nd anniversary, and we have three children—Noah (21), Aristotle (18), and Mary Frances (12). We love camping and recreating outdoors (well…most of us do), and we try to get back to our family in Salt Lake City, Utah, as often as we can. I have too many hobbies and interests to name (sketching and painting with watercolor, knitting, cycling, paddle boarding, writing, studying all kinds of things…), and I love to spend time with my family and friends any chance I get. This summer I am enjoying a sabbatical where I’ll be taking a month-long road trip to California and enjoying some rest and relaxation with my family.
