About Me

My Background

image1

God.  Music.  Writing.  Food.  Community.

These are the things that have defined my life.  In the beginning that looked like Church,  musicals, journals , Italians and choir.  Things have appeared to have changed over time but in one form or another these all remain.  And still the constant in all is Love.

What I love

from performance of Joan Chittister The Play in Morristown, NJ

Words

I love writing them, singing them, speaking them.  I love to tell stories and talk about the meaning of life.  

So I wrote a book about my life, a blog about everyday life, a play about Joan’s life and mine and my mother— and recorded two different CDs that try to capture the beauty, joy and mystery of life and Love.


Theatre

Into the Woods, Flagstaff, AZ 
Flagstaff Light Opera Company,
now Flagstaff Music Theatre

What a spiritual exercise to discover another's motivation, empty yourself and become them so you can tell their story and hopefully move an audience to feel more connected to them as well.  This is what theatre is for me and then there's the company you are working with...a community of change-makers.  Theatre is ministry, holy work, disguised as entertainment.

Teri's Work

Spark of Creation

image2

"This CD is born from, and is a celebration of, this "spark" that I call the Spirit of God."

Featuring songs of 

David Friedman 

and rarely heard songs from some musicals, you might not know.

Through Stained Glass: the priests of my life

image3

A true and intimate memoir.  Views of life and God are transformed.  Sometimes light-hearted, sometimes troubling, but always honest, we see the author inspired by, and sometimes despite, the priests of her life.

Joan Chittister The Play

image4

Joan Chittister:  Her story, my story, our story is a one-woman  play about the intersecting lives of women facing adversity, abuse & injustice.

”The work is seamlessly, artfully and movingly welded together.  It’s a fresh and interesting approach to the notion of the universality of women today.  It has heart and substance...great praise.”

                             Joan Chittister

NEW Book coming: Inspired Into Play

This book is about the process of change and finding your way through it.  Specifically, it focuses on the process of writing the Joan Chittister Play.  Its stories offer a blueprint for following one’s own path prompted by the Spirit, which always leads to the most unexpected and perfect outcomes. 

Changing Church, Changing World
