About Me

Katie and Kris, smiling on the shore.

I am a Unitarian Universalist minister in preliminary fellowship, and I am currently the minister of the Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Church, on the south side of Houston, Texas. My theology is pagan flavored, and my interests include the religious left, liturgy and worship, small group ministry, and articulating the specific theology of Unitarian Universalist Paganism.

I graduated from Boston University School of Theology with a Master of Divinity in 2021 and with a Master of Sacred Theology in 2022.

There are few things that are better at making us more resilient and empowered than spiritual practices. Religious communities are one of the best places to root ourselves when engaged in the deep, difficult work that our world demands of us. When I am at my best, there is a movement inward to the self, and out again to face the world; the place that has supported me in this is Unitarian Universalism, especially within my beloved home congregation and affiliated communities. When we engage in our spiritual work as a whole community, we transform our own lives and the lives of others. I have faith in these communities of ours! I believe that together we can dream of better ways of living and work to realize those visions together.
