Waterspirit Welcomes New Executive Director Blair Nelsen

Please join us in welcoming Waterspirit’s new Executive Director! Blair Nelsen officially started work at Waterspirit on July 1. She joins us from Yale Divinity School, where she recently completed her Master of Arts in Religion. Prior to attending Yale, Blair lived and worked in the Amazon and Atlantic forests of Brazil for 11 years, where she was engaged in grassroots ecological and spirituality work. Blair believes in the potential of a strong spiritual foundation to fuel effective social justice work, and she is thrilled to be joining the Waterspirit community.

After more than 20 years at the helm of Waterspirit, Sister Suzanne Golas is transitioning into retirement later this year. Stay tuned for more information regarding a celebration of Suzanne!
