As your Director of Religious Education (DRE), I am responsible for overseeing all aspects of the Eastrose Religious Education Program for Youth and Children as well as staffing and maintaining the Rosebud Nursery.

I have been a member of Eastrose since October 2012 and have been serving in RE since the Spring of 2011. I am currently working toward becoming a credentialed DRE by taking classes sponsored by the UUA, am a member of the Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA) and in addition to being a member I regularly attend the Pacific Northwest District’s (PNWD) LREDA chapter meetings.

My personal goal as DRE is to work in partnership with our minister, church leaders, the RE Committee, Eastrose families and our volunteer leadership to provide a well rounded religious education experience grounded in Unitarian Universalism that ministers to the needs of all.
