I am a third year Masters of Divinity student at Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, TN. A Northerner living in the South, I am learning the joys of “Southernisms,” such as the oft-heard “bless your heart,” which doesn’t mean the same thing as when you hear it in the Midwest. I am interested in ecotheology and feminist theology, and love thinking about how to make Christian social justice education accessible to young children. I hang out with the Alliance of Baptists and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America~Bautistas por la Paz. When I’m not in school or teaching small children how to garden, I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, kayaking, dancing, singing and eating at church potlucks.
