Peyton Williams is a second year graduate student at Vanderbilt Divinity School. She is originally from Richmond, Virginia and is a recent graduate of the University of Virginia, where she studied Psychology and Religion. In her time at Vanderbilt, she has been challenged to reimagine how ministry and pastoral care might look outside of the walls of the church and has been particularly drawn to the study of liberation theology. She is so excited to work with Open Table this year, and is looking forward to combatting cycles of injustice and oppression while learning how best to educate our communities and care for those experiencing homelessness in Nashville. When she’s not in the library, Peyton can be found hiking, playing the piano, exploring the city with her roommates or enjoying a cup of tea at High Garden.
