Advisory Board 

Britt McChesney.jpg

Brittany McChesney, Chair

Britt McChesney is a consultant by day, and a seminarian and graduate student by night.  She is a United States Navy veteran and is currently pursuing her Holy Orders through the Ekklesia Epignostika, USA.  Her passion for studying and practicing Gnosticism has led her to join the Gnostic Catholic Union as an advisory board member. 
 

Outside of work and seminary, she is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Themed Experience – in other words, she makes concept art for immersive experiences like theme parks!  She loves rugby, martial arts, and deep theological discussions.

Laurel Buckner, Trustee

Laurel Buckner is an In-Home Care Specialist, having served her community for 26 plus years as a hands-on nurse and leader, as a Regional MDS Assessment Specialist Patient Care Coordinator.
 

When she is not caring for others in a professional setting, studying, and researching, she enjoys making precious memories with her grandchildren.
 

She has a keen interest in Gnosticism, theology, and mythology.  She loves nature walks, animals, children, the elderly, reading, writing, researching topics of interest, embroidery, and arts and crafts.  Her hearts yearning for truth, knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, and her own personal experiences and desire to serve have led her to join the Gnostic Catholic Union's Board.
