Board of Trustees


Ustaine Tally, President

As a member of the Board of Trustees, I’m committed to seeing that our Spiritual Center provides the best possible opportunities for people to be involved in meaningful activities that make them grow in the direction of their dreams.  Whether that is a dynamic lesson, a thoughtful and engaging class, a volunteer project, an uplifting musical selection or stirring meditation, my hope is that each one finds that which enriches them at Unity on the Avenue.

Mark Moyle, Vice President 

Mark has been with UOTA for almost 4 years. After retiring from running his own sporting goods store for more than 35 years, he wanted to give back to the community, seek a new spiritual path, and belong to a place where that was possible. He enjoys sharing the task of maintaining the grounds with Scott Smith, working with the Outreach program to help those less fortunate individuals, and is keen on the UOTA book club.



Ellen Yu - Secretary

Ellen joined UOTA two years ago, and serves on the Welcome Team, the Outreach Team and the Green Team. When there was a call to serve on the Board to complete the term of a member needing to retire, Ellen stepped into that role.

After retiring from a 27-year career developing sales software for ING Financial Services, Ellen continues to serve by volunteering with AARP to prepare income tax returns and helping seniors with money management through the Senior Resource Center. She has served on the board of tennis organizations and continues to manage and play in tennis leagues. She enjoys reading history, cozy British mysteries, and maintains lifelong learning through OLLI courses. Ellen has two grown children, a granddaughter, and a little rescued dog named Rafa.

Lisa Carpenter
Lisa has been a member of Unity for the past 16 years. She was a member of Unity of Fox Valley in Illinois for 14 years and served on the Board as Treasurer. During her time there, Lisa volunteered on numerous projects and teams. She was also in charge of the Book Store and Cafe. Lisa taught classes on Essential Oils for several years and which contributed to a $10,000 a year income for the church. She has been attending Unity on the Avenue Spiritual Center since moving to Denver 2 years ago and has served on the Welcoming Committee for the past year. Lisa is honored to be of service.




Carol Braun, Keeper of the Flame

Carol has been with UOTA for about 13 years. She knew she had finally found her spiritual home the minute she walked through the door. She found New Thought thinking when she was an Anthropology major working summers as a forest fire lookout while reading Thoreau and Emerson. Almost immediately, Carol had some prayers powerfully answered.
She was a gynecologist in my career and I led the department for about 8 years at Kaiser Permanente. Carol reminds us that divine order is in all things and our job is to adjust and find the gifts that change brings. 





Thank you for your service on the board!
Board service is for 6 years - positions are 2 years.
