UnSelfishly Me
Room A102/104

Please join the Heath & Wellness Committee and United Methodist Women for a program designed by women, for women discussing the balance of our mental, physical, and spiritual health. 

It will include a panel of women to answer questions and guide us on our journey.

 

Our Panel:

Jan Keny, Licensed professional Counselor, over 30 years experience

Jan Keny comes to us as an overscheduled therapist in private practice.  Jan is a licensed professional counselor with over 30 years experience.  She has an undergraduate at Drake University and a Masters from Minnesota State University. She was the founding director of the Victim Assistance/Rape Crisis Program and worked as a therapist and trainer at Family Center, working with abused and neglected children and their families.  Self-care has been critical in surviving the passions that fuel her.  In an effort to not take herself too seriously, she has never turned down a french fry, gardens in the rain (some of you understand), and continues to search for the perfect trekking footwear.

 

Reverend Beverly Gilliam, ordained Elder and Chaplin

Reverend Beverly Gilliam is an ordained Elder in full connection in the Central Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. She relocated to Matthews North Carolina to take care of her mother, who has since passed away.  Reverend Gilliam has a B.A., and a Master of Divinity degree. As a commissioned and ordained pastor, she pastored churches in Waco, Riesel, and Fort Worth, Texas. Up until June of 2011, Reverend Gilliam was the senior pastor of Morningside UMC in Fort Worth Texas, where she had served since 2007.  Reverend Gilliam is a second career pastor who answered her call to ministry after years in corporate America. Currently, Rev. Beverly Gilliam is a Chaplin at Carolinas Medical Center.

Reverend Gilliam is married to David Gilliam, a retired businessman.  They have a daughter who is currently serving in the United States Navy. They now reside in Matthews, NC.
