I have been a Unitarian Universalist member for 20 years: Eliot Chapel in Saint Louis, Missouri; UU Church in Clearwater and First Unitarian Church in Orlando, Florida; and now a new Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem member since 2022. As of June 2021, my involvement has included: regular attendance for services; Connection Group member; Chalice Circle member; cantor, special music and choir member; instructor of several UUCS adult art classes (icons, watercolor, acrylic, drawing and weaving); Art Works Team member; UUCS art collection coordinator; member of Women’s Alliance; 2023 UU Women’s Retreat coordinator; and team art advisor for church aesthetics. Currently, I work with almost every department in the church; know many fellow UUCS members; and collaborate with Kaleidoscope School. I am grateful to be a part of UUCS; believe in our mission; and cherish the friendships I have made and will make in the future. I would be honored to share whatever talents I have as a Director on the UUCS Board. Thank you for your consideration.
