Meet the Pastor's Partner: Laurel Kapros

Baby Laurel (in the green) with her parents and twin brother.
I grew up in the Napa Valley, the daughter of a winemaker and a landscape gardener.  My parents and twin brother now live in Ashland, OR.  I came to the Bay Area to go Mills College where I studied English and I went on to get my M.F.A in Creative Writing from New York University.  I have been a legal secretary for many years and I currently work at a progressive law firm in the city.  I try to keep my creative side alive and write fiction and creative nonfiction.  
 I also practice a very cool Indonesian martial art at a great school in Oakland. I am very excited to become a part of the Grace family!
