I received my Masters of Divinity in 1999 from St. Bernard’s
In August 2011, I graduated from a year-long chaplain residency at the University of Colorado Hospital, completing 4 units of Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE). After collaborating in the production of The Kingfisher Foundation's musical bereavement CD, Suddenly Through, I was subsequently hired full-time as a Spiritual Counselor with their affiliate, Halcyon Hospice and Palliative Care, serving the Front Range of Colorado.
I continue my music ministry as a freelance performer under business name, Spirit Songs, and use these special talents when presiding at weddings and funerals. My work as a fine artist is displayed in various regional shows and exhibits.
Individuals within these communities of care recognized the priest in me. Upon my departure from Rochester, Dignity-Integrity presented me with a stole as a token of affirmation and appreciation. My sisters and brothers of Pax Christi ECC Church in Denver CO also heard that calling. Finding a spiritual home in the Ecumenical Catholic Communion (ECC) and believing that it was time to take up the mantle and live in the fullness it signifies, I was ordained in 2012 to the Catholic Diaconate on September 28th and the Catholic Priesthood on the Feast of St. Michael and the Archangels, September 29th. After serving Pax Christi as Associate Pastor I assumed the duties of Pastor in March of 2015; I serve the larger Communion as the Presiding Bishop's local Vicar, a member of the Rocky Mountain Regional Council, and co-editor of their regional newsletter, The Journey Shared.
