“As a sociologist, I am acutely aware of the many sources of inequity and lack of opportunity on the basis of many different variables (e.g. race, ethnicity, class, gender, age, etc.) As members of the community, I believe we each have a moral mandate to act to ameliorate some of the harmful consequences of inequality whenever we see it.”

Georgia’s past career and now her volunteer activities all work to support that moral mandate to help those impacted by inequality. Her career includes serving at places such as the Swope Ridge Geriatric Center, St. Therese Little Flower, the Center for Women in Transition, the Greater Kansas City Coalition to End Homelessness and as co-founder and executive director of Journey to New Life, serving men and women reentering society after incarceration. She also was an assistant professor of sociology and director for the Center for the Study of Aging at UMKC. Today she can be found tutoring for literacy and GED, serving as a board member and peace activist for Peace Works-KC and founder of a Community Computer Center to teach women how to use basic computer programs to assist in their children’s education. Georgia was also ordained as a priest by Bishop Bridget Mary Mehan of the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.
