My prior positions of service to a broad range of church organizations have given me a comprehensive overview of the many facets of The Episcopal Church. I have had the opportunity for significant experience in matters of governance, finance, operations and the search process. Evaluating facts and reaching conclusions have been integral to my business and my philanthropic life.
My previous activities provide a strong framework for addressing the various issues that come before the Standing Committee, especially for the role as a member of the Council of Advice, which is so crucial to the good order of the Diocese and the ministry of the Bishop.

Faced with the complex challenges of the 21st Century, faithful men and women in the Episcopal Church pray and hope for justice and peace for all of God’s people. We need to find common ground in our diversity to hold each other up in faith; that in our discernment of being Christian in our time, we hold on to the core of Christ’s teaching to love God with our heart, mind and soul, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. In this endeavor, we need to be inclusive in our conversations, deliberations, and decision- making as we strive for clarity of that vision we can act on, that we and the whole world hunger for.
