As the proprietor of Wisdom & Wilderness, my professional experience includes teaching at the University of Illinois, serving as staff at an community organizing alliance, being the Executive Director of a Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and serving all that is holy as the first female and first queer senior pastor at two congregations in the United Church of Christ (a non-creedal Christian denomination pushing the boundaries of radical inclusion).
So I have spent a lot of time with people in crisis, people who are being actively oppressed, people who are curious, people who are fearful, people who are being born, people who are dying. And I have confronted a great deal of sexism and homophobia in myself and in response to my self.
I have come to understand that all persons are gifted with wisdom and we are part of wilderness, still able to hear creation's song, this creation that is irrevocably climate-changed.
Here are a couple of places to get to know me and my work online:
