CREDENTIALS

Though Ann practiced medicine as a physician assistant for 20 years, it was her last decade of work in palliative care that profoundly influenced her decision to become certified as a chaplain. She completed four units of clinical pastoral education at the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, as well as a fifth subspecialty unit in hospice and palliative care at Capital Health System, Hopewell Campus. In 2015, she received board certification from the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy.

 

"Each person expresses their spirituality as part of their humanity. This expression can be seen in religious practice, in communion with nature, in the arts and music -- even in the simple, everyday gestures of daily living, like preparing a meal. I create an intimate translation of that spirituality within every ceremony, making each encounter unique, meaningful, and deeply personal."
