New Director of Lifespan Faith Development
If I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you yet, my name is Emily. I accepted the position of Director of Lifespan Faith Development with UUCV in October 2017. I am experimenting with a new Family E-News format, and I’d love to hear what you think. What do you want to know each week? What features do you love (or hate)? Let me know!
I’m originally from Urbana, Illinois, and I moved to California to complete a Masters in Sociology at UC Santa Barbara. For seven years I worked in campus sexual violence prevention and response, providing advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. I moved to Carlisle in August with my partner Brian, who is a first year law student at Penn State Dickinson.
More about me: I love practicing yoga at Simply Well, I am excessively amused by videos of baby goats in pajamas, Nutella is my kryptonite, and I’m mostly a Ravenclaw (with some Gryffindor tendencies).
I am excited and honored to join the UUCV staff and UU community here. I believe that Unitarian values and community can change young lives – and that we are all lifelong learners. I look forward to getting to know you and your family! Please come say hello before or after service on Sundays, visit my office hours on Mondays from 12:00 – 2:00pm, or let me know another time that works best for you – I’d love a coffee shop meeting or a walk around Children’s Lake!
