Notable quotes: “I experienced religion through many unique non-traditional demonstrations of faith… I began to realize early in life that God was not the same for every individual or every denomination… I bring my experiences and passion for justice to ministry…  I am candidating because I believe that all of my gifts and all of my life’s experiences will lift up and speak loudly to and for the principles and purposes of Unitarian Universalism.”
