I am the Director of Religious Education for our youth and teen program. Before this appointment, I was the Committee Chair for the Religious Education Committee and also one of the many volunteer teachers. I decided to join the UUCE and be part of the Religious Education program so that I could be a part of my child’s spiritual exploration. Outside of the UUCE, I am on the Board of Directors for the TransFamily of Erie County, LLC and I am an adjunct professor at both Penn State Erie: The Behrend College and at Gannon University. My focus of study is Lifespan Development, Positive Psychology, and Gender Studies. I have participated annually in the Penn State Behrend Gender Conference. My goal with my work and volunteer positions is to make life better for my child and her friends.
