I am blessed, as a certified lay minister, to serve on a volunteer basis in a number of different capacities for our church: director of the Adult Spiritual Education, chair of the Finance Committee, assistant to the Senior Pastor, worship liturgist, and worship lay speaker.

I am a retired health care executive from the Atlantic Health System. I received an M.A. degree in Philosophy from Ohio State University, an MBA from Seton Hall University, and a M.T.S. from Drew University. I am also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

My faith journey has been especially impacted by my Walk to Emmaus in November, 1998, which literally changed by life. My favorite prayer, no surprise, is the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
