I was born in West Virginia and raised in South Central Pa. Starting in college, I worked with youth first in a church and then for five years with Young Life. After graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary, I spent 25 years as Presbyterian Minister, serving churches in Texas, New Jersey and suburban Philadelphia. I am a doctoral candidate at Drew University and have taught seminary classes in Church History, Biblical Studies, and Practical Theology. I have spent the last ten years involved in interfaith work, initially as a member of the national Jewish-Presbyterian dialogue team and most recently as a fellow with the Christian Leadership Initiative of AJC & Shalom Hartman Institute. I am currently consulting with non-profit and faith based organizations, mentoring professionals and giving spiritual direction. I am also the Director of Adult Education and Stewardship at Church of the Holy Trinity, Philadelphia. I have a growing family, whose latest addition is a grandson Dominic Valentine, born 10/16/14.
