Hello, my name is Kamilah Aminah Jones, and I’m an MDiv Candidate at the Candler School of Theology (c' 2024). I’m a 1st generation Jamaican American woman born and raised in San Francisco, California. My maternal family immigrated from the beautiful island of Jamaica, and my paternal family migrated from the vibrant city of New Orleans. I’ve always embraced the richness of my cultural heritage and family history, which has significantly contributed to my ongoing faith journey. Faith, music, education, and service are some of our cherished family values.

 I’ve been honored to serve within the mental health field as a psychotherapist and provide case management, crisis intervention, and supportive services as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with a Ph.D. in Clinical Social Work. I’ve enjoyed research, teaching, advocacy, and providing clinical services. I have a great passion for promoting safety and well-being, advocating against interpersonal violence, and empowering others to their greatest potential.

 My divine purpose is grounded in love, unity, and peace. I’m a life learner with endless curiosity as a truth seeker. I love and embrace the gift of diversity. I love the outdoors and spending time in nature (i.e., mountains, beaches, parks); I love all visual, performing, and expressive art forms. And I enjoy baking and cooking for family and friends.

 I feel tremendously blessed to have the opportunity to be a Chaplain Intern through The Emory Office of Spiritual and Religious Life for the 2022-2023 academic year, and I look forward to meeting you and walking together on a sacred journey.

Ministerial Intern

My name is Liz Martin. I am a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, a sixth-generation Mormon (non-practicing), and an aspirant for Unitarian Universalist ministry. Last July my husband transferred to Atlanta to enable me to study here at Emory (Candler). I have two young adult children and a large extended family I love fiercely, and I am passionate about prison reform, comprehensive sexuality education, and delicious vegan food. My favorite recreational activities are road trips and attending concerts. My intention is to experience an adventure in spirit-seeking and community that I couldn't necessarily get in my beloved hometown, and I'm excited to meet y'all along on the journey!
