Seher is a pediatric staff chaplain at a hospital in Oakland, CA. Previously, Seher served as the Assistant Director of Spiritual Life and Advisor for Muslim Affairs at the University of Chicago, where she worked with all the religious student groups and communities. She also worked as a Chaplain in Residence at Georgetown University, where she completed a Clinical Pastoral Education Residency. Passionate about building communities and interfaith bridges within her professional and personal life, she describes her life mission and goals as “cultivating healthy communities founded on compassion and care for one another.”

Seher loves arts and crafts of all kinds and describes creative outlets as “one of the avenues important to my spirituality.”

Seher is a part of our research advisory board because Springtide asks many of the questions that arise in her daily work with young people.  “Whether on college campuses or connecting with young people receiving medical care, there are trends that remain the same through the years,” she notes. But we keep asking these questions and listening closely because we know even within these trends, there is “a lot that changes” in the lives of young people.
