Bascom, born in Denver, is a graduate of the University of Kansas and Exeter University. She earned an MDiv at Seabury-Western Theological Seminary and a DMin in preaching from Iliff School of Theology in Denver.
She joins two others in the all-woman slate: the Rev. Martha N. Macgill, rector of Emmanuel Parish in Cumberland, Maryland, and the Rev. Helen Svoboda-Barber, rector of St. Luke’s Church in Durham, North Carolina.
