About Me

Joined UCH: 2004 | Board Term: 2021-2024

The Unitarian Church of Harrisburg has been a beacon of warmth and compassion since my husband and I joined in 2004. He had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. It would have been almost impossible for me to survive those years without your support.

My spiritual journey began as the daughter of two Jewish parents who survived the Holocaust (yet who were essentially atheists), marrying and becoming Episcopalian, and raising our two children as Humanists. I am proud of my French heritage, and proud too, for having passed my physical therapy NY state license exam (first time around!) in 1980.

Since joining UCH, l have served on a number of committees including Pastoral Care, the Grounds Committee, and the Auction Committee, and I have sung in the choir.

I am very excited about Rev. David Kohlmeier, our Ministerial Candidate. I look forward to working with him, as well as with all of you, as we move together into a new and exciting future.
