About Community Ministry

I have been a Minister of Spiritual Science for 20 years.  Spiritual Science is an interfaith, metaphysical ministry.  I took the 4-year ordination program in the New York and New Jersey Spiritual Science Centers, and was ordained at the New Jersey Spiritual Science Center in June, 1992.  I ran The North Light Center in NYC from 1992 -1995.  This was a spiritual and holistic center, and I revamped the ordination program of studies.  In 1995, I moved to Manchester, Vermont, and have served as a minister here, primarily through creating ceremonies for the community, teaching and counseling.  My counseling skills are based in being a Certified Rubenfeld Synergist.

I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.  I have been part of a Poetry Writing Group for three years, have been on the organizational team of the Festival of Writers in Rensselaerville, NY, and will begin moderating a Poetry Reading Group sponsored by Northshire Bookstore of Manchester Center, VT on October 25th, 2012.

I have been Minister in Residence of  Sunderland Union Church since 2002.  This small, rustic church on Hill Farm Road in Sunderland, VT is available for weddings, funerals, and special events.
