I am a theologian, trustee, writer, professor, copyeditor, lifelong Orthodox Christian, amateur naturalist, wife, and mother of five living in the Pacific Northwest.

Coming soon:

My book, Maternal Body: A Theology of Motherhood from the Christian East, will be published by Paulist Press in 2019. Maternal Body is both a reflection on the deeply intertwined physicality and spirituality of motherhood, as well as consideration of our embodied, incarnate existence through the fresh lens of the maternal body.

A volume I have edited, The Reception of the Holy and Great Council: Reflections of Orthodox Christian Women, will be published by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Department of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical, and Interfaith Affairs later this year. It is comprised of thirty essays by an international group of Orthodox Christian women offering a diversity of responses to the Holy and Great Council of 2016.
