OUR YOUTH AND FAMILY MINISTRY EDUCATORS:
Unitots: Maja Egger, Jane McEwen, Vicki Bornstein
Jane A. Thomas McEwen started attending Unity many years before becoming a member in 1998 when Unity In Marin was at The Masonic Hall for services. Now seeing her name on the brick around the fountain reminds her of how proud she is to have been part of this community assisting spiritually & financially in manifesting this wonderful new church home in Novato. Then in 2009 she was blessed to become a part of Youth and Family Ministry with the Unitots. This is one of the most rewarding experiences in her life. She enjoys being called Grandma Jane to all these wonderful children. She is sincerely grateful for all the wonderful moments and love given to each other at Unity In Marin and especially with Unitots.
UniKids: Lori Callies, Cindy Hall, Pat Tubman

Uniteens: Sarah LeValley, Bill Knight
I joined Unity in Marin in September 2011. I quickly gravitated to the Youth and Family Ministry group volunteering to lead all the kids in holiday projects, first making ornament for the Narthex Christmas tree then making gingerbread houses. It was a great fit and I began teaching Uniteens twice a month in January 2012.
I have spent over 20 years in the animation film industry and I have had the privilege of working for Walt Disney Feature Animation, Pixar Animation Studios and Lucasfilm Animation. I have been involved in the making of many wonderful animated feature films including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc, Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles. Prior to my animation career I had a wonderful time working in theatre as a production manager. I graduated from University of California Santa Barbara with a BA in Theatre and did one year of graduate studies in theatre set design at Carnegie-Mellon.
I am deeply honored to be one of the sponsors of the Youth Of Unity (Y.O.U.) high school group. I have attended Unity In Marin for over 24 years, served in various volunteer positions at church including as a Prayer Chaplain and have many years of experience with youth through my own 3 sons who are now wonderful grown men. I have also volunteered extensively in school and other youth programs, have served on several boards and have worked with troubled youth in recovery programs. My professional background includes law, real estate and personal and corporate coaching, but I especially love working with high school youth.
