Beryl works with the professional staff, as well as volunteers, to design and implement religious education curricula and programs for people of all ages, from the youngest babies to older adults. Her work provides a foundation which nurtures each individual’s search for meaning by inspiring spiritual, emotional and religious growth within the context of our Unitarian Universalist faith.


Beryl has more than 25 years of experience as a religious educator in the UU denomination. Prior to her arrival at First Church in 2001, Beryl served as DRE at the Unitarian Church of Lincoln, Nebraska for more than 11 years. She also served concurrently as the Lifespan Religious Education Specialist for the Prairie Star District of the Unitarian Universalist Association for five of those years. She has two adult children, both of whom have been active in denominational leadership, and she’s also a proud “Bubbie” (Yiddish for grandmother).
