A “cradle” Episcopalian, she was born and raised in Southern California. After high school and a move to Missouri, she was educated at St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing and Webster University, graduating in 1983. Most of her thirty-seven years in the healthcare industry have been spent as a registered nurse in the hospice care venue. In 2000, after discerning a call to the diaconate, she began the process towards ordination in the Diocese of West Missouri, and was ordained in 2004. She has served three churches, the last being St. Paul’s Church, Carondelet. She is married to Fr. Al Jewson, who does interim ministry in the Diocese of Missouri. She is the mother of two, grandmother of five. She brings a bivocational ministry to the Church; serving alongside others to reach the marginalized, the sick, and those who grieve.
