Jennica first joined the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries in 2014. She began her ministry with youth as a youth advisor at First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, her hometown, in 2008. Since then she has served as Youth Program Coordinator and Religious Education Assistant (First Unitarian), District Youth Ministry Consultant (Mountain Desert) and Regional Youth Ministry Specialist (Pacific Western).
Her vision for Unitarian Universalist (UU) youth ministry is that every UU youth has a dependable support network that acknowledges their inherent worth and dignity and fosters their potential as spiritual leaders, and that every UU adult in that network has the wisdom, compassion and support to meet that call. Her spiritual practices include gardening, yoga, rock climbing, playing the ukulele and nature adventures in the Utah wilderness with her husband Mat.
