As Generous Giving Project Officer, I bring to the role 13 years of leadership experience in the British Army, where I managed community projects and trained as a specialist in culture and languages. People are my thing. I'm happiest when I'm chatting to others and listening to people's faith stories and experiences of the world. I became a Christian 4 years ago and I'm delighted that my strange path to Jesus has led me back home to the North East, to serve Durham Diocese. When I'm not preaching, attending PCC meetings and synods, or visiting clergy, I'm playing rugby and weight lifting in the gym with my friends. I have a wonderful husband who serves in the Army, and a delightful 21 year old cat who's still living life to the full.
