We are fortunate enough have a great group of people who work for the CVR. With this staff, anything is possible!
firstname.lastname@example.orgI am the Program Director of the Center for Vocational Reflection. In that role, I work with students to explore vocational discernment through a theological lens. I like to ask questions such as “What are you called to do?” and “How can you help make the world a better place by being happy with and passionate about your chosen field?” I feel very blessed to be working for a Wesley Foundation, as United Methodist Campus Ministry has so deeply shaped my family. I met my husband, Dennis, through the Wesley Foundation at the University of Iowa when I was a rehabilitation counseling grad student and he was a pharmacy student. In honor and appreciation for the Methodist founding of our family, we named our first son Wesley (though he goes by Wes). Our younger son is named Daniel. Both boys love going to work with me when they are not in school.
In my 21st year as the campus minister here at Threehouse: A Wesley Foundation, I feel like I start a new college career each year. It’s so cool and moving to be with all of the Threehouse family. These college years are such a rich with potential time that I continually find beautiful, creative, insightful vessels of God’s love around here. I am married to another UMC pastor, Jaymee Glenn-Burns and the father of daughters Allyn and Magee. I find that it is easy and important learning from all my Reverse Mentors, family and Threehousians. Music loving, creativity celebrating, curious inquiry, inclusive community are all things I try to work to instill at Threehouse. I was raised in an education oriented family in Ohio. My father and siblings all had/have multiple degrees in education. To serve at UNI feels like home in many ways. Thank you for this great privilege.
