I oversee the Sunday School, foster a fun and spiritually nourishing community for our children, and help provide support for St. Marks’ parents and families (all with the help of many wonderful volunteers). I grew up in Boston, a daughter and granddaughter of evangelical pastors. I started teaching Sunday School at a young age, and also spent my high school and college years working at Christian camps, helping with vacation Bible schools, and organizing outreach events for kids and teens. My husband and our two children came to Palo Alto in 2013 and were so happy to find the vibrant St. Mark’s community. As a writer, I appreciate the shaping power that words and stories have in our spiritual journeys. I’m excited to help the children and families of St. Marks find words to articulate who God is in their lives.
