I’m an Episcopal priest serving a small parish in the northern reaches of the New York City suburbs. This is actually my fourth career–I’ve been a stay-at-home mom, a single mom full-time student (undergrad and grad), and a college professor, all before answering the call to priesthood. I’ve lived in 11 states and 2 countries, and I’ve never stayed more than 8 years in any one place (although I wouldn’t mind changing that trend). I grew up in the South but I consider New England and New York home after living north of the Mason Dixon line for more than 20 years.  And I consider myself lucky  currently to be living in my favorite city, New York City.

I keep on reinventing myself in one way or another. In the last few years I changed my eating habits and lost 80 pounds. After spending most of my life claiming that I HATE exercise, I’ve found the opposite to be true. I love to run (who knew?) and  in 2013 I ran my first half marathon.

The very best reinvention though, was when after many years of being on my own, two years ago I met a wonderful, kind and loving man, with whom I have much in common. Falling in love again was something I never expected, and I give thanks every day for this person in my life. We’ve been married almost a year, and it keeps getting better.

My four children have flown the coop. To my three beautiful grandchildren (who are the light of my life) I”m known as Amma.

Run, Amma, run!
