I am a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA). I am currently serving as Interim Pastor at the Union Church of Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY. I also serve the the Community Church of Little Neck in Queens as Co-Pastor with my husband, the Rev. Forrest Todd Parkinson. Both of us are in training to become Spiritual Directors.
I am also a clinical social worker. I have been fortunate to work in settings where ministry and social work have gone hand in hand.
We are parents to two great kids, Andrew (24) and Hannah (20). We have a forever fur family: two fat pugs, Gracie and Betty, and a cat, Bob, who create endless diversions with their snacking and napping practices.
I love spending time with friends, reading, movies, and wading in warm ocean water.
I am returning to writing after a very long hiatus.
