Kimberlee Anderson-Diaz

Kimberlee loves a good story (preferably shared over a cup of tea), whether it’s in a book, a movie, or in a patient’s room. She cannot walk into a Target without reading a children’s book and will happily read aloud to you if you’re with her. Kimberlee’s clinical focus is oncology, though she serves in numerous areas around the hospital. Prior to chaplaincy, Kimberlee worked as a volunteer coordinator for Court Appointed Special Advocates, a non-profit that trains and supports volunteers who advocate for children in the foster system. As a Queer chaplain, Kimberlee has a special place in her heart for those who have been left out or cast out by institutional religion, LGBTQ folks, and the “nones” and “dones.”

David Bergstrom

David wants to live in a world where peace exists for everyone, where donuts and ice cream burn calories, and where kids do their chores without giving excuses or complaining. With fourteen years of clinical work, he has experience in multiple areas, as well as being the keynote speaker for regional health care conferences. When he is not at work, he is fixing up his house or some meals for his wife, dog, and two teenage sons, enjoying the creativity of the Marvel and DC universes, or looking for a quiet place to read or draw. David is curious about the intersection between resiliency, creativity, and faith and in his spare time is a professional artist.
