I write icons, prayers, liturgies, poetry, and sermons. I paint, hike, kayak, and meet God in nature. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fervent friend and champion of the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the abused, and the hopeless, guarding their dignity and connecting them to or creating resources to help meet their needs.
I am an experienced healer, a vessel used by God to bring wholeness of body, mind, and spirit to many, especially those healing from violence or abuse. Likewise, spiritual direction and holy conversations provide means for promoting individual healing, wellness, and the teaching of spiritual disciplines.
The granddaughter of Irish and Spanish immigrants, I love Celtic spirituality and Latino issues are very important to me; including the response of our Episcopal Church to this population as partners in mission and ministry. I'm able to conduct Spanish-language services of Holy Eucharist and the Daily Offices and am currently working to renew my conversational fluency.
Evangelism, i.e., how we share our Good News, matters to me. I develop literature, websites, and am active on social media where I engage many wounded or lapsed Christians, atheists, “nones," and young adults who are seeking.
