Introducing myself...
I was born in Truro, Cornwall and grew up in an old mining town, Camborne.  Childhood memories are of long summer holidays spent on the beach and swimming in the sea! I studied Geography at Plymouth University and subsequently did a postgraduate teaching course for secondary aged students.  Following this I worked in a variety of secondary schools in Hampshire, both as a classroom teacher and as a head of department.  In 2002 I briefly left teaching and moved to the voluntary sector, here I coordinated respite care for children with severe special needs. From 2006 to 2009 I studied and trained for the priesthood at The Queens Foundation in Birmingham, I was awarded a Diploma in Applied Theology.  I served my curacy from 2009 to 2013 in the Benefice of Farmborough, Marksbury and Stanton Prior and was a chaplain to Bath Spa University.  During this time I was also chaplain to Bath Abbey. I am married to Mark and we have been married for 13 years.  To relax I enjoying swimming, walking and fish and chips!  I’m hoping to reconnect with a lost passion, that being cycling, I am hoping days off will be spent exploring the wonderful Somerset levels.    I am very much looking forward to this new and exciting ministry, getting to know everyone and becoming a part of your community.
