As a writer, activist, and lay theologian, I have led workshops in hundreds of U.S. congregations, retreat centers, conferences, and reality tours in Central America. After the Peace Accords were reached in El Salvador(1992), my work turned towards raising awareness and funds for Salvadoran women’s empowerment projects. Beginning in 2001, I started leading workshops and classes on writing and spirituality in retreat centers, congregations, and universities. In 2007, I obtained a MFA in Writing from the University of San Francisco and completed my thesis, Love, War, and Other Secrets: A Memoir while authoring A Dream Journey: The Incredible Story of the Founding of Eastside College Preparatory School, a published work-for-hire. In 2018, I published Unwrapping Christmas: A Memoir.
In my book, Birthing God: Women’s Experiences of the Divine (Skylight Paths: 2012),I empower women to claim their innate connectedness to Spirit and to realize the sacred in their daily lives.
