My name is Andrea Matson-deKay. My husband, our younger son, and I joined Pacific Unitarian in 2013 when we moved to San Pedro when our older son left for college. We’d just returned from seven years of living in Latin America on the sailboat that is our home. We knew this UU church would be the perfect place to begin establishing connections in our new community.

Our son participated in the OWL and Coming of Age programs at Pacific Unitarian. Since 2017, my spirit has been nourished by singing with the choir. My social justice awareness, which I had thought to be already well developed, has grown exponentially as a devoted member of the Sunday zoom meeting which has become the Multicultural Transformation Team. Our family has made lifelong connections here.

It would be an honor to be a member of the Board.
