Bill Garvey is an active, and ‘activist’ retiree. Professionally, he spent the majority of his career as a Registered Nurse and 17 years with a small bio-tech company working in the Narcolepsy and Sleep Medicine community. His service at OBUUC includes: Nomination Committee (2 terms), Committee on the Ministry, Safety Committee, Interim Transition Team, Safety Policy and Bylaw Review/Revision, and Board of Trustees.

He has been active with Olympia Brown UU Church (OBUUC) since the early 1990s and became a member some years later. He finds the institution of Unitarian Universalism welcoming as a non-theist and a student of evolution. He appreciates that the members of OBUUC prioritize engagement in our community to work toward social and environmental justice and are a people who “show up”.

He is honored to be a member of the OBUUC Settled Minister Search Committee. He looks forward to engaging with his SMSC teammates to help guide OBUUC through the important, and covenanted, Ministerial Search over the upcoming year.
