David Reed, Bishop of West Texas, and other colleagues that she has accepted a new position as Data Analyst and Performance Coach with United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, beginning January 2022.

During her three years on staff, she has helped us navigate several significant transitions, including strengthening our digital presence and supporting congregations at the start of the pandemic as they adjusted for online worship. I and the rest of the diocesan staff will miss her and wish her the best in this new chapter. I know that the United Way will be well-served by her gifts and skills."
