Heather’s journey with spiritual direction began out of her experiences with spiritual formation & prayer groups throughout college, seminary training, graduate school, and in the context of working with university students during her early career. Heather is thrilled to be pursuing spiritual direction training with Sustainable Faith and Kavanna House in York, PA.
Heather knows that along the way, we arrive at various points on our journey with God–a crossroads, a crisis, or a conundrum–in which we need another to come alongside us, to help us pay attention to God’s presence. Heather finds joy in helping others pay attention to how God is working in the ordinary around them so that they can hear His invitation–an invitation welcoming them to live into the reality of how deeply they are loved and known. Heather’s passion is to listen and pray with those who find themselves at these various points on their journey. Because of her diverse background in education (from K-8 to university), life in ministry, and international work with students and refugees, Heather is comfortable walking with both men and women who desire to grow in their faith or who want to explore questions that are hard to ask in church. She feels particularly led to partner with those working around the globe, believing that spiritual direction is a means of grace, providing much needed encouragement, pastoral care & spiritual friendship to those who live and work in hard places.
Heather, along with her husband and two children, lives in Baltimore, Maryland, worships at Central Presbyterian where her husband also serves on staff, and partners with families at Cambridge School. Heather loves laughing with her family, finding hidden gems in used bookstores, and drinking coffee around the world.
