I'm happy you found your way here!  

I'm a native of the Philadelphia area, and I consider myself a "cradle" Presbyterian.  I grew up in church, and when I got too old to participate in the programs for kids, I began to help lead those programs.  One of my favorite things in my early church life was those catchy Vacation Bible School songs - some of which I still remember!

After graduating from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia with the strange combination of a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts and German, I managed a small nonprofit in the city. During those years, I earned a Masters in Nonprofit Management from Eastern University and felt a true calling to work for a cause instead of a profit.  Through some God-placed individuals, I realized a calling to the ministry in 2010.  Some of the best years of my life were spent at Princeton Theological Seminary where I earned my Masters of Divinity in 2014.

I was called to Valley United Presbyterian Church later that year to be the first pastor of this newly-formed church.  Through all the bumps in the road to bring these three congregations together in our little Valley, I found a home, a calling, and a love of the Lord that surpasses anything I've known before.

When not in church, my husband, Gerard, his daughter, Abby, and I enjoy horror movies, Broadway musicals, hiking, canoeing / kayaking, and hanging out with our Jack Russell Terrier / Beagle mix, Shiloh.  

I can be reached at 570-888-2269 or pastorsharan@valleypresby.org.
