Tandi Rogers has been the Program Specialist for the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho) since 2002. Her job description is simply “supporting all programs and people who breath life into the mission of a congregation.” This includes youth ministry and young adult ministry, social justice, lifespan faith formation, and leadership development. She is also a candidate for the ministry, is in seminary at Seattle University, and is a freshly minted Credentialed Religious Educator – master level.

Prior to this work she has been a campaign manager for a Tacoma City Council member, a development officer with Associated Ministries of Pierce County, and a teacher on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation (in the valley of Mt. Rainier.)

She is also the mother of Quinn (16), Owen (14) and Kepler (2.) Their dog is named Padawan, which means “Jedi in training.” She co-parents the older boys with two other parents (their Dad and “other mother”) in an arrangement they call a graphed family tree.
