It is hard to believe that my 21 years as Associate Pastor at WPC went by so quickly! Medical mission teams to Guatemala and Haiti, teams to Fresno or Gulfport, planning group trips to Biblical lands, welcoming refugees, teaching, visiting members and friends in hospital or home, creating and supporting small groups, participating in Sunday worship - the many activities of a pastor were life-giving to me. I loved it!  Ordained ministry was my second career. After ten years as a Systems Analyst, earning a UC Berkeley MBA and a Master of Divinity at San Francisco Theological Seminary, I was grateful to be ordained and installed as Associate Pastor of Westminster in November of 1992 and served with Rev. Doug Huneke until retirement in December of 2013.

Currently my primary focus is volunteering with refugees and immigrants at the Canal Alliance and at Davidson School in San Rafael. Rowing every morning on Richardson Bay is a beautiful luxury. For fun, I enjoy painting and ukulele classes, involvement in groups such as league of Women Voters and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, hearing great speakers in Marin County  AND... my first grandchild was born in April 2017. I am grateful to be back involved at Westminster visiting members and supporting the Outreach and Society programs including an educational trip to BorderLinks in Tucson . Thank you for such a wonderful community!
