My family and I have been members of VUU since 2010 when we were introduced to Unitarian Universalism for the first time. Since then I have volunteered in RE by assistant teaching the middle school class and participating in the worship band. I was also the Membership Committee Chair for 2 years and was engaged in the Leap of Faith program with our mentor First Universalist Church of Denver and learned about congregational growth and UU organization as a whole. For the past three years I have participated on the Board of Trustees Last year I was the boards’ Secretary and this year I am the boards’ Vice President. I have not only enjoyed learning and growing with the board, but I have also become much more connected to our mission.
Outside of VUU I am an IT manager at a large company here in the valley. My wife and I both find VUU as our second home and feel very lucky to have our 3 boys ages 4, 6, and 8, growing up in this community.
