I have been a UU since 1992, when I discovered a UU church in my neighborhood, and thought, "Why not?" Since 1998, I have served as Choir or Music Director for 4 different UU churches in the Portland area, and currently serve the UU Congregation at Willamette Falls in Oregon City. I have been the GA choir director, and a featured vocal soloist at GA several times over the past few years. I am a regular attendee and music staff for the Eliot Institute, a UU family camp in northern Washington. I have worked in administrative support for everything from a large high-tech company to small non-profits in the arts and the environment. I'm really looking forward to moving into the Education Assistant role - I'm always up for learning new things, and excited to see how this offering will support UU ministers and ministry. I live in Portland, OR where I am dubiously managed by my feline companions, Sachie and Luna.
