Barbara Cambron

“As a lifelong spiritual seeker, I have experienced a multitude of ways to become more spiritually aware and grounded. As I continue my journey, I believe  Spirit of Sophia will challenge me within a safe environment to expand my horizons.  My life experiences of travelling and interacting with international organizations and communities give me some perspectives that could be valuable in our circle.”

Sandra Rippetoe

“I am a poet, lover of nature, homeschool teacher (retired), spiritual seeker, and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with bachelor degrees in psychology and nutrition/dietetics from University of KY and MA degree from Lexington Theological Seminary. My dream for the future is to buy five acres, grow organic vegetables and fruit, and create a butterfly and bee sanctuary.”

Melanie-Prejean Sullivan

“I retired after more than 18 years as the Director of Campus Ministry at Bellarmine University and am currently pursuing  interfaith chaplaincy and teaching.  My doctorate in practical theology has led me on several adventures, including research into women’s ways of knowing.  I was recently appointed to serve for a three-year term as a Research Associate with the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology in Cambridge, England, founded to promote theological study for women in the church.”

Pam Yenawine

“My life experience includes 17 years as a French teacher, 30 years practicing Buddhism, and my now 18 year-old practice as a CranioSacral Therapist.  It is my honor to serve in the journey of creating a source of grounded and expansive opportunties for women, of all ages and backgrounds, to embrace the unique qualities and missions that each of us possesses, and to create community that exists to nourish and nurture the Spirit of Sophia in as many women as possible.”
