Term: 2019-2022

I began attending ERUUF in 2011. I was in search of a welcoming and diverse community that would foster growth and development for my growing family. With an Italian and Catholic background growing up and experience as a practicing Buddhist, I felt that ERUUF embodied an authentic and vibrant community, consistent with my values. My involvement with ERUUF has included assisting with religious education for the 3/4yrs olds and most recently serving with the RE Ministry Group.

I live in Durham with my daughter (Venia), our dog (Guido), and our two cats, (Bella and Rocky). I work at Duke Medical Center on faculty as a nurse researcher and practicing nurse practitioner in cardiology. For fun, we enjoy everything outdoors and especially time with friends and family.

I am honored to be considered for this role on the Board of Trustees. My goal is to serve by engaging with this community to foster growth and diversity that leads to deepening connections.
