An intern minister at First Parish for the 2019-2020 church year, Jennifer is a seminarian in her final year at Meadville Lombard Theological School and a Candidate for Unitarian Universalist Ministry.

Raised in a secular family but longing for religious community, she found her spiritual home as a young adult in the freethinking, open-hearted, justice-seeking Unitarian Universalist faith. Prior to answering the call to ministry, Jennifer’s winding vocational journey included stops in literary studies,  nonprofit communications, and childbirth coaching. She is delighted to be learning and growing into religious leadership with the support of First Parish Chelmsford.
