A Connecticut native, I grew up within a wonderful congregation with thriving Sunday school and youth programs. Those experiences and opportunities led me into the field of social work. For 14 years, I served as a forensic social worker within the foster care system. I worked with youth and families within a clinical realm from family preservation to reunification. My expertise was adolescence with a focus on resilience.
My husband and I moved to Wilton in 2010 and joined WPC in 2013. I taught Sunday school to help my children transition into their faith journeys. In teaching I developed an interest in facilitating that journey for other small children. Furthermore, as a former clinician I felt called to share both my expertise as well as my time with the older youth of WPC. I began working with WPC in 2016 as Youth Director within the Family Ministry. Our Church School Leadership team provides a thoughtful foundation for young children with which to grow and continually evolve their faith. Through the Joint Youth Ministries program, we work to create a fun and safe atmosphere to help our older youth feel comfortable. We encourage and nurture open minds and hearts. We listen to their desires, dreams and interests within a program designed to enrich their lives of faith, fellowship, community, and service.
I have two wonderful, kind children and am very involved in their schools.
