Our Leadership Team




I first attended a Maryland Trans*Unity meeting in 2012, as a butch dyke - but I had been contemplating my nonbinary identity since my twenties. I became a facilitator in 2014, and kept the support group in place when its founders moved on. I am passionate about LGBTQ+ organizing and advocacy in Montgomery County, in addition to the Maryland General Assembly. I am also a co-founder and board member emeritus of the MoCo Pride Center. I have been happily married since 2004, and am a stay at home parent for my two children.



Vice President

I have been a group facilitator, scheduler, and organizer with Maryland Trans* Unity since late summer of 2018. I began my transition in 2015 and I joined Maryland Trans* Unity because I wanted to help other trans people through their journey. I grew up in Montgomery County in Bethesda. My day job is in the developmental disability field as a case manager supporting autistic people. I was diagnosed with ADHD and autism in middle school. I have an interest in the intersection of being trans and autistic. I am also passionate about equitable public bathroom access for trans, nonbinary, and disabled people. 


(he/him, they/them)


I have been attending Maryland Trans*Unity meetings since approximately 2016, and took on the task of facilitating meetings in 2023. I am a librarian, so I am passionate about fighting book bans wherever and whenever possible. During virtual meetings when I am not facilitating, you can find me cooking in the background. Cornbread, pizza, and soup are among my favorite things to cook. I am also a fervent knitter.



Leadership Team Member

I have attended Maryland Trans*Unity since it was founded in 2012. Maryland Trans*Unity was meeting at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Congregation back then. I am a faithful cisgender ally, and have helped out behind the scenes throughout the years. I am also very involved with the League of Women Voters, my condo association, and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockville.



Leadership Team Member

I came to Maryland Trans*Unity in 2017 feeling scared and isolated as a transgender woman. Maryland Trans*Unity meetings provided a comfortable venue to share and explore myself around people  who I didn't feel I had to explain myself to. In this safe space, I started to learn about myself as I am without comparing myself to others, and healed in the process of doing so. I am happily married, and enjoy family and friends as well as my work as an aerospace engineer. I also find a lot of solace in nature.
