Why Susan

This is a pivotal moment. We are in a time of great change for our nation and our planet. This is also a time of opportunity. More than ever, Unitarian Universalism is called to be a bold and vital voice for love and justice.

To be effective in this moment, we need spiritually vital communities, strong relationships, and an Association that is mission-focused and organized for impact.

We need a President capable of providing strategic, spiritually grounded leadership, in the midst of uncertainty. For the last eight years, I have served a vibrant, growing congregation in Phoenix, Arizona. Living in a border state, I have come to see that ours is a border faith, and this is a border time. A border community is a unique place. It is not defined by either/or thinking, but by a both/and way of life. It is a place of change, growth, and opportunity. We need a leader who can help us grow as a border faith, reaching more deeply within and beyond. We need a compelling voice to remind our communities that what we do matters, that how we live and share our border faith matters and how we witness and work for our values matters. This is desperately needed in this world.

As President, I would be focused on unlocking the power, the opportunity and the calling of our faith in this moment.

To the Presidency…

  • I bring a breadth and depth of relationships.
  • I bring the experience of revitalizing congregations for greater health and vitality.
  • I bring the capacity to articulate a compelling vision for our faith and the skills to move that vision forward.
  • I bring an abiding love and respect for our faith and tradition and the unwavering commitment to see it grow and thrive.



So grateful to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix for their support in this journey.
