Her personal mission statement is “extending the table of love so all may eat and be full.”  Dalton aims to be a "facilitator of change for the Church," calling her "to transformational leadership and growth so all persons are welcomed into a place and space to become their whole selves."

We welcome her to our staff and know that she will be a force for change that we need.
