Margo Rinehart is a fourth year seminary student at Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry. For the next 12 months she will be joining Westside for her Unitarian Universalist Association internship. Margo comes from twenty-five years of social work experience with children and families. She has been a member of the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for over twenty years, where she worked actively with the Worship team, Board, fundraising, Committee on Ministry, and other duties as assigned! Her call to ministry comes from a passion for Unitarian Universalism, a burning desire to celebrate and nurture the Divine spark in all of us and ten years of Buddhist thought and compassion practice. She grew up in the Puget Sound area and currently resides in Kitsap County with her husband Kelley. Their son is entering his second year at the University of Washington – go dawgs!
