I am overjoyed to be returning to the Trinity community, which has been a spiritual home for me for over 20 years. My parents began attending the church in 1997 when I was just a year old, and I was involved in the children and youth programs for many years. My own spiritual formation as a youth at Trinity helped me begin discerning my call to ministry in high school. 
 
In addition to Trinity, I treasured the time I got to spend as a camper each summer at the Bishop’s ranch, where I later worked on the camp staff for 6 years. 
 
I attended Boston College, where I studied theology and was involved with various campus ministry programs including leading small groups, service trips, and after school tutoring.
 
Following my graduation from BC in the spring of 2018, I began working at Epiphany school— a tuition free Episcopal middle school for students from low-income families in Boston. At Epiphany, I taught religion and directed our weekly chapel program. During my time in Boston, I also attended (another) Trinity Church, where I volunteered with the youth program for the past year. 
 
I am so excited to be returning to the Bay Area for the 2020-2021 academic year. In addition to joining Trinity as interim youth minister, I will also be beginning my Masters of Divinity at Church Divinity School of the Pacific. I look forward to this new chapter!
