Contact Eve with questions about:

- Family Ministry
Eve grew up near Clemson, South Carolina, attending the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. She attended Hamilton College in upstate New York where she majored in History. While there she had the opportunity to study abroad in Uganda and Rwanda: “My classmates and I worked with returning child soldiers in Uganda and researched the process by which communities welcomed these children home and attempted to begin life again. In Rwanda we lived with families who had been affected by the genocide in 1994. Again, we observed how people were coming together to reconcile feelings of anger, loss, and a complicated need to forgive. I came home amazed at the human capacity for cruelty, but also our capacity for compassion and resilience. I also came home more sure than ever that I wanted to spend my time in Unitarian Universalist communities doing ministry in the company of people who never stop trying to build a more kind and fair world.”
Eve wanted to experience ministry at a large congregation and was able to intern at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax, VA. She then became minister of the UU Church of Utica, NY. Because of the very positive experience in Fairfax, Eve was interested in returning to a large congregation and so pursued the opportunity here at UUCC when it presented itself. She joined our professional staff on May 1, 2018.
