My Background and Education

Leaf

My faith is grounded in the reformed Christian tradition,

and I am also conversant and comfortable in all faith traditions. 

 I received my M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary

and have served pastorates, taught, and led retreats in Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia.

My certification as a Spiritual Director is with the Shalem Institute for both individual and group spiritual direction. 

I'm also certified through Together in the Mystery to provide Supervision of Spiritual Directors.

I am the Co- Author of What is Your Practice: Lifelong Growth in the Spirit along with Dr. Norvene Vest. 

I currently divide my time between work as a chaplain at Hospice of the Piedmont, providing spiritual direction, and serving on the leadership teams for the Certificate in Spiritual Direction at Columbia Seminary and for the Group Spiritual Direction Program of the Shalem Institute.
