She is currently serving as interim Rector at St. Andrews Episcopal church in College Park, MD. Before that she served as Vicar at the Holy Nativity Episcopal Church in Baltimore. She has also served as a consultant for urban congregations on the efficacy of community organizing in congregational development. For the past 15 years Huber has served in a number of pastoral roles in Baltimore and Atlanta, including ecumenical and educational positions. Her positions have provided her with the opportunity to offer pastoral care and counsel to teachers, seniors and parents, and students from pre-school to high school.

She has experience working in a variety of communities and neighborhoods ranging from suburban affluent neighborhoods to underserved and economically depressed environments.

Huber is a sought out lecturer and has addressed subjects ranging from leadership in the church and in the community to faith and justice and systemic injustice, including urban poverty, education, housing, redlining, and how the church can respond to issues affecting our community, to racism and reconciliation.

She has contributed a chapter to “Organizing and The Church: Congregations Organizing for Growth,” which is to be published sometime in 2017. Awards that Rev. Huber has received include the Distinguished Alumni award, conferred by Holland Hall School, Community Service Award, conferred by the Baltimore Police, and Marylander of the Year, honorable mention by The Baltimore Sun.

Other positions held in the community are as a board member of the Episcopal Urban Caucus and a former board member of the Anti-Racism Commission Diocese of Atlanta, Feminist Women’s Health Center (Georgia), Episcopal Service Corporation, Holy Nativity St. John’s Development Corporation, and the Parks Heights Community Health Alliance and the former Pimlico Road Youth Program (Maryland).
