Margaret began work with the Diocesan Offices in December 2021. They and their family have lived in Maryland since 2006 while Margaret worked managing university apartment housing for Frostburg State and then University of Maryland, Baltimore through Capstone On-Campus Management. Margaret has been active in the Episcopal Church since 2006 teaching Sunday School, running the food pantry, as Senior Warden, and generally helping out where it was needed. Margaret and their wife, Kathleen, have twin sons – Martin and Jonathan who will be graduating High School in 2022. Their chaotic house is made even more so by two rambunctious cats – Pepper and Franklin. Margaret manages the various properties that are under the direction of the diocesan offices and will assist all diocesan parishes with being better stewards of their property – whether that be maintenance planning, site visitations/inspections, and creating a vendor information sharing database as a resource.

Chaplains serve individuals in unique situations where they are coping with the challenges and opportunities of that environment. It is the task of the Chaplain to help them deepen their spirituality by understanding where God is in their life and hopefully, to discover meaning in the situation as presented. The clergy, staff and lay leaders of the diocese strive to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in a world where there are increasing changes in the traditional church and fewer resources. When a representative of the diocese is there to address the range of personal stressors in the areas of illness, family conflict, finances or the inevitable changes brought about by the reasons stated above, the dedicated clergy, staff and lay leaders feel that their efforts are recognized. As with any large caring family, a crisis seems less daunting when you know you are not alone.
As a chaplain, Joanna seeks to help individuals to find deeper meaning in both the joyful and challenging aspects of their lives. While that sometimes requires extensive work one to one or with families, there are even more instances where a cup of coffee, a willing presence and a shared laugh are needed. Joanna looks forward to creating a program around caring for the caretakers and opening avenues of communication among clergy and staff to share experiences and resources.
