Amy grew up in Connecticut in the Conservative Jewish tradition. She majored in Studio Art and Religion at Wesleyan University, traveled to India and Nepal on a Buddhist Studies Program, and after teaching for two years, entered the M.A./Ph.D. program in Religion at Syracuse University. She began attending the Unitarian Universalist church in 1992 and left Syracuse after receiving her M.A. in order to follow the call into the ministry.
She graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2000, was ordained the same year, and served as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland, Vermont, for four years. She was called to the parish minister position here in 2003.
Amy’s favorite non-ministry pursuits are reading (scifi, mysteries, general fiction, essays), cooking, watching movies, making and looking at art, enjoying good food and conversation with friends, and petting her cat. Most of all she loves to spend time with her wife Joy and their young daughter.
She is at UUCPA on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, as well as most Sundays (Wednesdays find her writing in her home study). You are warmly welcome to drop by her office (Room D) anytime. Since she might be meetiing with other congregation folks or out in the community, it’s a good idea to make an appointment by calling our Office Administrative Assistant, Debra Heinz, at (650) 494-0541 x24.
