Elected Church Officers & Vestry Members 2019
Other than 4 years away at the University of Chicago, I have been a member of Holy Comforter since birth. I was baptized and confirmed here, and it was here that the congregation was able to join my family in significant moments- both happy and sad. I truly understood the role of the parish, not only as a center of worship but also as a family, during the illnesses and deaths of my parents in 2011. Holy Comforter provided a home that was needed at each varying point of my life.
At Holy Comforter, I serve in many different roles. I currently serve as Registrar as well as am commissioned as the Congregation’s verger. In the past I have served as an acolyte, usher and chalicist as well as singing in the children’s choir (many moons ago and I do not miss those ruffs). Currently I also serve on the Worship Commission, Altar guild, Flower guild and many other tasks as they arise.
Outside of Holy Comforter, I currently work as an academic advisor at both the Community College of Baltimore County and Howard Community Colleges. I also enjoy cooking and love to travel.
