How would you describe your religious affiliation and/or spiritual background?

I attended an Episcopalian church for many years and was drawn to the richness of the liturgy. I took graduate classes at San Francisco Theological Seminary (Presbyterian) and completed The Ignition Exercises created by the founder of the Jesuits, St. Francis of Loyola. Presently, I attend a non-denominational church in Scottsdale. I love experiencing the many ways different faith traditions worship the Holy.

In one word, how would you describe the way you feel about the GTU?

Love (the integration of different faith traditions)!

What excites you about being a member of the GTU’s Board of Trustees?

I am excited about how the GTU is positioned to model respect and acceptance for different cultures and different faith traditions around the world. It serves as an example of how we can grow in our own faith by simply learning about others. 

What do you find inspiring about GTU 2.0 and the future of the GTU?

Higher education institutions need to learn how to be nimble and agile to address the needs of a changing world. The GTU has embraced this challenge and continues to remain alert for ways it can make a deeper impact on students and community members.
