Anita joined the life and ministry of Lenape Valley Church in September, 2015. She is the daughter of a Navy Chaplain, growing up in military ports around the world. She is a graduate of Penn State (and very proud to cheer “We Are!”), Princeton Seminary, and has earned her doctorate from Drew University. Her doctoral dissertation focused on J.R.R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings. Anita has served churches in PA, DE and NJ. She also teaches at Chestnut Hill College in the Religious Studies Department. Anita has a passion for reaching the emerging generations with the good news of Jesus Christ. She has a passion for worship, a desire to help people explore the Word of God, and a pastor’s heart for those in need.

Anita and her husband Greg have four grown children- Daniel and his wife Jen have three little girls; Grace is working on an MBA at Wharton; Matthias is a college student and Matthew works as a carpenter. Anita enjoys a long walk, a good book, a hard workout, and a leisurely conversation with friends.
