I am honored to be a current trustee of GTS. I have learned what a close-knit Christian community GTS is and have been welcomed home, as the seminary invites all of us. Spreading the message of home and welcome is the basis of GTS's continued success in a sound and hopeful future. I bring to this position nearly 20 years of fundraising and development experience in higher education and in the non-profit sector. I am the Director of Development for Pittsburgh Opera and before that led a team of fundraisers at Carnegie Mellon University. I am also trained as a lawyer and commercial litigator. It is a varied background of experience that I continue to offer in service to my church community. I am active in my parish and have held various leadership roles in my diocese, including chairing our Bishop Nominating Committee. At this Convention, I serve on PB&F and previously on the Committee on Ministry. I ask for your continued prayer and hope for your support again.
