I am an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A, and a Board Certified Chaplain with the Association of Professional Chaplains. I earned my M.Div. degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2000.
I have been blessed to serve God in many different capacities: as a missionary in mainland China, a chaplain in a nursing home, a pastor in a rural congregation in South Dakota, as a chaplain in a large hospital and as an individual in the checkout line in the local grocery store. God is constantly stretching me and growing me, challenging me with new and varied ministry opportunities. My passion lies in applying theology in practical situations, namely in healthcare and in transitional settings.
I have been blessed to receive the support of many women clergy colleagues and some male clergy colleagues. The most supportive clergyman I know is also my husband and the love of my life; the Rev. Dr. Edward Goode. We live in Cincinnati, OH with our three theologically precocious children.
