Staff & Leadership

We’re a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of church.


We’re not afraid to get dirty. In fact, the entire congregation plays a role (or two) in the day-to-day activities of BUMC. If you’re excited about the opportunity to use your Spirit-given gifts to build up the Body of Christ, fill out a Connection Card when you come to visit, or head on over to the Contact Page and send us an email.

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

I was baptized into the Methodist Church as an infant and received my call to pastoral ministry when I was 16.  I was a lay speaker, taught Sunday school and developed community outreach programs for mothers with young children and summer vacation bible school. I also led worship, bible study, prayer meetings, and puppet ministry. I became an educational advocate in 1994, was a Board of Education member of the public school, and was an advocate for the homeless in Long Island.

I was commissioned in June of 2008 and appointed to the Woodbury United Methodist Church.  I was a participant in the Bishops Pastoral Excellence  Group and race and religion studies. I continue to serve as a Spiritual Director for the Conference Walk to Emmaus. In 2016 was ordained into full membership of Elders orders to the United Methodist New York Annual Conference. I continue to be an advocate for those with Special needs as they are part of God’s creation that Jesus held a special place in His ministry.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”    Matthew 11:28-30

“Bakerville to me is a place where God is present in spirit and truth and where friends are family. ”

I write poetry and fiction.  I love Pinterest, walking, tag sale shopping and reading/watching science fiction.  I’m the only introverted Italian I know.  I have been married to Sam Fiorello for 42 years. Together we have raised five awesome children who are now in the process of raising our eleven precious grandchildren. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist at the Christian Counseling Connection in Torrington, CT

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.”  Psalm 139:13-14
