I am an author, blogger, speaker, thought-provoker, former chaplain, and an advocate for broadening the reach of spiritual and pastoral care more fully and inclusively into our communities and our daily lives. I believe that pastoral care is ‘spiritual’, experiential, and existential– not simply or even primarily religious in traditional ways of thinking. As such, caring for, about,and with others are, in the end, all concerned with what it means to be truly human in our shared journeys… of ‘being’.

I earned my four (4) credits of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) through a Chaplain Internship at Reading Health System and a Chaplain Residency at Christiana Care Health System. I have also done chaplain work at Paoli Hospital. I received my Master of Theological Studies Degree from Palmer Theological Seminary, with a concentration of Contextual Theology. As part of this degree, I successfully completed a double thesis project on Christology and Soteriology, respectively, from a Latin American Liberation Theology perspective.
