Kate Plummer is a nurse, midwife, and chaplain-in-training who is discerning a call to Unitarian Universalist ministry. She worked at the Vermont State Hospital right up until it flooded during Tropical Storm Irene, and now sees patients at Planned Parenthood health centers in northern Vermont. She is mother to an adult daughter, and daughter to elder parents, and is seeking to respond as well as she can to this year’s UU call to dismantle intersectional white supremacy.
