I have found God at a Run the Jewels concert, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, at a Moral Mondays protest, and in Christian worship. I once preached in Duke University Chapel and a prison in the same day.

I currently live, work, and play in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I am the Prioress of The Foundry House at Crossnore School & Children’s Home, a residential Christian community for young adults, with the Missional Wisdom Foundation. I am an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church and a graduate of Duke University (B.A. ’08) and Duke Divinity School (M.Div. ’12). I am also a current graduate student in the M.A. in Bioethics program at Wake Forest University. I like building relationships, challenging assumptions, and making holy mischief. Also, apparently, being in school.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, making music, being active, embarking on (and occasionally completing) DIY home improvement projects, and spending time with friends, with my husband Colin, and with our three beloved pit bulls, Crash, Gertie, and Hooch.
