ABOUT
the 
Committee on Publication

The Christian Science Committee on Publication for Wisconsin is one of many offices around the world that provides accurate information about Christian Science and its discoverer and founder, Mary Baker Eddy.  If you are a member of the media, are involved in legislative or regulatory efforts or are a member of the general public, I am available to answer your questions or find answers for you.

A Bit About Me

I have had a life-long interest in justice, learning and public service.  Currently, I am appointed for a one-year term as the Committee on Publication for the state of Wisconsin (reporting to the Manager of Committees on Publication for The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA., Kevin Ness).

This means I am also the media and government relations representative for Christian Science in Wisconsin for the 20 churches and societies located around the state.  I enjoy opportunities to talk with journalists, editors, legislators, producers, and the public at large about the spiritual capacity to improve and restore our personal health and well-being as well as the health of our communities and governmental bodies.

 

My previous careers include non-profit management, elected three terms to the State Legislature, commentator on Wisconsin Public Television, and government and media relations for institutions of higher education.  I am married with three children, 3 grandchildren and 2 Welsh corgis.

A Wisconsin “lifer” I love all things Wisconsin from art and architecture (we once lived in and  restored a Frank Lloyd Wright home) to nature.  Growing up a block from Lake Michigan in a home my father and grandfather built, I especially cherish Wisconsin’s water resources from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi to our current Middleton Pheasant Branch Creek conservancy and camping, trout fishing, kayaking, skiing, hiking and biking in our state parks.

I grew up in a Christian Science household with both sets of grandparents and great grandmother all practicing Christian Science as a way of life. I will be forever grateful for this gift of providing me the tools (Bible and Christian Science textbook) to confront all of life’s challenges as opportunities. I have been an active member of several Christian Science branch churches and 

The Mother Church (as the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston is called) in many capacities including: as a local church First Reader; Sunday School teacher; Reading Room attendant; and as a Journal listed Christian Science practitioner.
