Since 2011, I've been the rector of an Episcopal parish church just outside of Boston. In my daily work, I help facilitate a community of compassionate, generous and faithful people as we pray, laugh, serve, and care for each other, our town and the world. Prior to that I served another parish in greater Boston as an associate rector for four years. In 2007 I received a Masters of Divinity degree, and was ordained as a priest shortly thereafter.
