Valerie arrived as Pastor of Madison Mennonite in October 2019. She previously pastored in Virginia, and also served a three-year year term with Mennonite Mission Network in London, England at Clapton Park United Reformed Church with her partner, Justin.
Valerie considers herself an Anabaptist ecofeminist, caring deeply for the Spirit’s shalom-inspired liberation of the earth and all its inhabitants. Valerie received her Master of Divinity from Eastern Mennonite Seminary in Harrisonburg, VA, where her capstone project focused on building a creation care theology informed by Anabaptist women farmers.
In her free time, Valerie enjoys running, gardening, planning and hosting dinner parties, and ‘outlaw’ country music (but secretly likes some pop country, too).
