Micalagh came to the role of Program Director in 2017 with over 13 years of experience in various community nonprofits, as well as personal experience living in four models of intentional community, including a service corps year in Washington, DC. There, she lived in a house with 6 other women, ages 22 to 60 with 7 different faith backgrounds represented.
She has a passion for intentional community living (in its many forms) as a way to learn about oneself and others, and as a move towards a sustainable future for all of us. She spent a year and a half as the Program Director for an environmental- focused study abroad program in Belize— another experiment in community— this one in the jungle of Central America.
She is a proud social worker and also has a counseling/therapy background, which is applicable to many areas of life- both on the job and off. She has also taught various college courses, both in Belize and at a local PA college.
She is passionate about creating healing spaces for people to grow and learn, and to build bridges between people of various backgrounds. Some of other areas of interest and experience include: ecological justice, homelessness issues, racial justice, women’s empowerment, trauma-informed care, mindfulness, and conflict resolution.
On a personal level, Micalagh lives in Harrisburg and can often be found riding her bike up riverfront park, in a local café, or walking to Broad Street Market. She is married to Joshua Moritz, a former Sycamorian, middle school teacher, and farmer at heart, and they have 2 young children.
