Meet the Team
Believe it or not, we have always had a permanent, full-time staff of just two people--since 2007, that's been Maureen and Laura--filled in with a devoted crew of interns and volunteers. We are here to serve you! Find out more about us:

Maureen Fiedler
Host and Executive Producer

Maureen Fiedler is the host and creator of Interfaith Voices. She has been involved in interfaith activities for more than three decades as an active participant in coalitions working for social justice, racial and gender equality, and peace. Her special interests lie at the intersection of theology and public policy. She holds a Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University.


Laura Kwerel
Senior Producer

Laura brings to the show her love of radio and oral history. The senior producer since 2007, she is especially intrigued by the mysterious, mystical side of religion. She holds a master’s degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, and studied psychology and film studies at the College of William and Mary. She has earned five journalism awards for the show: for her five-part series on sacred sound, and more recently, for her story on the sacred musical traditions of ancient Syria. She’s ecstatic that 10 years of Hebrew school have finally come in handy.

Arielle Zionts
Associate Producer for 2015-2016

Before joining Interfaith Voices, Arielle reported for In These Times magazine in Chicago and KPFA radio in Berkeley. She studied radio at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, ME and anthropology at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. When she isn't making or listening to public radio, she is riding her bike, petting other people's dogs, and asking big questions.


Libby Boulter
Part-Time Assistant Producer

Libby holds a Master of Arts in Religion from Westminster Theological Seminary and an M.A. in Mesopotamian Studies from the University of Michigan.  After spending many years as a graduate student, Libby chose to leave academia and is thrilled tobe on the team at Interfaith Voices.  In addition to theology and public radio, she enjoys high quality television drama and playing with her miniature schnauzer.

Katie Dreyer

Katie earned a B.A. in religious studies and English from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2014 and is currently pursuing a master's in Conflict Resolution at Georgetown University. She loves writing and researching, and is constantly looking for ways to combine her passion for theology, politics, and literature. In her spare time, she likes to hike, play with her dog, and drink copious amounts of coffee.
