I was born in Perth, Western Australia, the eldest of four siblings.

I became a Christian at the age of 14.   

I call the city of Kalgoorlie home. It is a gold mining city on the edge of the desert approximately 650 kilometres east of Perth.  I worked here in both nursing and teaching. 

Royal Perth Hospital and Edith Cowen University were my nursing and teacher training institutions.

In 1994 I came to the U.K to train as a Registered Nurse at St Georges Hospital and Kingston University.  I later trained as a District Nurse through Southbank University. 

I am married to Ken; together we have fostered adolescents with complex needs. We have two granddaughters, one of whom lives with us permanently.

I worship at St Stephens Harlow, where I have been involved with PCC, Youth and Schools work and Cafe Church. 

Reading, people watching, craftwork, visiting historical places of interest, photography are among my many interests, but I am fascinated by Biblical and Egyptian archaeology and enjoy the challenge of studying more about these things.

I was born in Sunderland, and grew up in Harrogate, in Yorkshire. There, I attended St. Aidan’s Church of England School and Sixth form, with my younger brother, Joe. Having grown to love both religious studies and philosophy at sixth form, I studied Philosophy and Theology at the University of Oxford. Whilst I was there, I grew to better know the Church of England, singing with my college choir as a Choral Scholar.

Once I left Oxford, it became clear to me that God was calling me to explore ordained ministry. During a moving day on retreat at the Cathedral of Bath and Wells, I decided to explore this vocation. My exploration led me to Chelmsford Diocese, where I worked as a placement student, first with St. Mary’s Becontree, and later with St. Edward’s, Romford. I made Romford my home for the next two years, as I explored my vocation, and then began ministerial training at Westcott House, Cambridge, in 2016.

I have a lively interest in film and theatre, and an enduring love for countryside and woodland walks.

Growing up in Chelmsford, some of my earliest memories are of attending the local church playgroup.

After school I joined the BBC, working as a reporter for local radio and then as a TV producer. I was unexpectedly invited on an Alpha course in my early 20s that just ‘happened’ to be hosted by the church where I had attended playgroup twenty years previously.

I was quite surprised to meet some of the volunteers from that playgroup, who were still members of the church, and had been praying for me ever since! I became a Christian and my journey to ordination started soon afterwards; although it took over ten years for me to realise!

I have been married since 2009 and we have two young boys.
