Work: Pastor, New Light Lutheran Church

I serve because: Dundalk is the first place I have lived where there is a core of people so organized and deeply invested in and willing to work to better their community. Though passionate people don’t always agree on the “how”, I am excited to lend my voice with all those in the community who are helping Dundalk improve and grow. I believe that together we will see our community grow and develop.

How I got involved: I was excited to learn about the great community events DRC provides and as pastor of a local church, got involved with them right after moving here. I believe there were still boxes in my house when I walked down the street to the Holiday Hoopla my first year living in Dundalk. I have been excited to partner in these events with the church and as a resident of the community.

Other affiliations and activities: I have been blessed to serve as the pastor of New Light Lutheran Church since November of 2012.

Skills and expertise: In addition to a Masters of Divinity, I have a Masters in Social Service Administration from the University of Chicago and some training in community organizing.
