Westerhoff Maconochie will start on April 1. A native of Southampton, Westerhoff Maconochie has served churches in Michigan, Missouri, Kentucky, and upstate New York for the past 35 years. She earned her bachelor of arts degree from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA, and a master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary.
