Jaz is delighted to join the United Parish team as a Seminarian for 2019-20!
She grew up in New Jersey and graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2013 with a BA in Women’s Studies and English. She then started working full time in the undergraduate housing office and pursued a MS in Nonprofit Management at Columbia University. While living in NYC, Jaz joined the Metropolitan Community Church of New York (MCCNY) where she fell in love with parish ministry. She is now a second year student at Harvard Divinity school.
In her spare time, Jaz enjoys many styles of dance, although her background is in ballet. Jaz lives in Somerville with her beautiful wife, Jackie and their cat, Mr. Bumble.
