Director Rel Edu: Karen Childs
Karen joined our staff in 2013. She balances hard work with making merriment. She is passionate about building community and whether noodling on her uke or enjoying a cup of dark roast you'll find that there is always room for one more at her fire.
Admin Assistant: Susan Vernal
Susan joined our staff in 2001. She often jokes she arrived her first day on the job as a new photocopier was being delivered… two new fixtures in one day for the UUSB office!
She loves lists and craves organization, along with a voluntarily simplistic lifestyle for which a home life with dogs, cats, and a special-needs child demands.
Her interests are varied and include genealogy, history, foreign languages, home improvement projects—to name just a few. She enjoys movie classics and British comedies. Long ago, she was an elementary school teacher. Email Susan

Nancy joined our staff in 2005, and brings her 28 years of experience as a church musician to our congregation. She believes music is the language of our emotions, providing, when needed, rest, uplift, or celebration. Most importantly, she believes that music draws us together.
