Tobie Saad Dahlman is a wellness consultant who has been in private practice for the past 8 years. In 2011, she relocated to the Oxford area to marry her favorite colleague from graduate school and raise their blended family of four children. Tobie’s enthusiasm for conversation is at the core of her interest in community outreach. She is passionate about collaborative peace building and cultivating global citizenship through the simple act of bearing witness to oneself and one another.
Jennie Kiffmeyer will be one of our two Campus Ministers serving with Tobie Dahlman. She has previously worked with students as a college librarian and instructor at Earlham College. A writer and performer, she loves exploring the places where human and divine stories overlap. She believes that God calls us into relationship through story so that we might better know ourselves, one another, and the Holy One who calls us each by name. Jennie's hobbies include cooking, acting, and playing with her two school-age children, Ben and Lizzy.
