Meet the YMAC
I am a member of Unity Church-Unitarian. Besides being on YMAC, I am also active in my church's youth group and also on a local interfaith youth leadership team.John Coakley I came to the Unitarian Universalist faith as a teenager in the 1990s and became a youth and young adult leader at the local, district, and continental levels. Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in History writing a dissertation about pirates. I live in Boston with my partner, Kate, and two very large cats.
Raised in Portland, OR and recently relocated to Ohio for school, I’m a first-year college student with a passion for community building. I first experienced vibrant youth ministry at a Pacific Northwest District con in 2008, and I’ve been hooked ever since. When I’m not with UUs, I can often be found working for my student cooperative, singing in an a cappella group, promoting the sex-positive movement, and looking for cats to snuggle.Karen Letourneau I am a member of the North Parish of North Andover, Ma.where I have taught OWL & been a COA mentor. I am the parent of two young adults who were involved in youth groups, OWL & COA. I am a Family Nurse Practitioner providing primary care to adolescents Alaina Gunter I attend Pathways Church in Southlake, Texas and this is my first year on the YMAC. I'm so excited to be a part of such a wonderful group of people who are doing such great work in youth ministry.
