I fell in love with the Bernese Oberland as a teenager and have returned many times since then. I have been school chaplain in South Manchester for the last 21 years, but have also worked as a university and hospital chaplain as well as vicar of a parish. My pupils claim I look younger now than I did when I arrived.

I first served as an ICS chaplain in 1997 and have been privileged to serve most years since then. My husband David and teenage children Lucy and Harry enjoy working together in the chaplaincy.

I enjoy sport, music, art and travel. My current challenge is learning Mandarin.
