Meet Our Director of Religous Exploration
On In Fall 2010, Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists (BFUU) welcomed a new Director of Religious Exploration to oversee our Programs for All Ages.
Caitlin S. Cotter grew up within Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (TVUUC) in Knoxville, TN, where she served as the Youth Representative to the Board of Trustees and was active in district wide youth work. While an undergraduate at Bryn Mawr College she was co-president of her campus’s Unitarian Universalist group and represented Unitarian Universalists within Bryn Mawr’s Multifaith Alliance. She was also an intern in the UUA’s pilot Summer of Spirituality and Service Program, which gave her a chance to study Unitarian Universalist History and Activism while serving at the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. After graduating from Bryn Mawr with a BA in Anthropology and Concentration in Environmental Studies, she worked as an environmental educator and advocate before returning home to restart TVUUC’s young adult group. After finishing her grad school applications she served as a Young Adult Resident at The Mountain, a UU retreat and learning center in North Carolina, and then headed to Alaska to volunteer with the Forest Service. She is now a second year MDiv student at Starr King School for the Ministry, and very excited to be living in Berkeley amongst so many amazing progressive religious folk.Caitlin says, “I look forward to continuing to grow our Religious Education program, building a vibrant multigenerational community, and bringing together spiritually alive people of all ages under BFUU’s roof.”
