Laurel Liefert


Laurel was absolutely wonderful. Selecting her to be the minister at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made...besides picking each other, of course!

I love being a minister.  What an honor  to be with people during some of the most significant and moving moments of their lives!

I was born and raised in the Central Valley of California, went to college and law school at the University of California at Davis.  In my 20's, I lived and worked in Yosemite Valley for 5 years and carry the memories of the granite peaks, waterfalls, meadows and forests in my heart.

I lived for 30 years in Oakland and Berkeley, CA, where my partner Francey and I raised our two sons.  After 7 years as a civil litigator, I quit law practice and taught law students all over the country studying for their bar exam.

I experienced my call to Unitarian Universalist ministry in my home congregation, the First Unitarian Church of Oakland.  I graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry with a Masters in Divinity in 2006 and was ordained in 2008.

I currently serve as the settled minister at the Namaqua Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Loveland, CO.
