For the last five years, she has served on the staff of The Center, a mission and community
engagement initiative of the Presbytery of Baltimore.
McKenna is a graduate of Rhodes College, a PCUSA-affiliated school in Memphis, TN, and of
the Boston University School of Theology, and brings her knowledge of environmental, feminist,
trauma, and disability theologies with her to ministry. She is passionate about equipping
churches to work for justice and to be anchors in their broader community, creative worship, and
finding ways to gather around tables to eat together.
Formed both by her years and family in Memphis, and by her people and movements in Boston,
she never misses a chance to gather people around a table to eat, to share food, and to show off
her hybrid love of Southern/Cajun flavors and New England lesbian urban farmer-made soup.
