Joan is the administrative director of CFDM Nevada. She was certified as a Spiritual Director in 2003 after completing a 2-year program through Oasis Ministries in Camp Hill, PA. Her training was modeled after the spiritual formation/direction program offered through Shalem Institute in Washington D.C.  She considers it a privilege to accompany people on their spiritual path. Her heart’s desire is that folks know and are in touch with the Divine that lives within, to help foster their deeper awareness of God as a relational one, and that they experience God’s unconditional love through their own stories.

Maria Glanzmann, Board Member:

Maria is a mother of three who loves long walks and reading books while drinking too many cups of tea.
