Term: 2019-2022

Although I am not a longtime UU member, my interest in ERUUF is well-founded: It was one reason that my wife and I chose Durham. Having read of ERUUF’s many groups, activities, and vibrant membership, we saw the community that we sought. ERUUF has become central to our lives here. We enjoy supporting the Pastoral Care team, helping at special events, serving as back-up Visitor Hosts, and lending a hand as able.

I hope that my experience, skills, and beliefs will prove helpful in supporting the ERUUF Board. My career spanned over 40 years in the behavioral healthcare, educational, and not-for-profit arena, including developing outpatient and inpatient programs supported with 100-400 staff and overseeing 400k square feet of facility construction. That experience, and a turn away from the dogma of a Catholic upbringing, align my beliefs with UU humanism and inclusiveness.

I am honored to serve on our Board.
