My wife Kate and I moved to Newark in 2022 so we are fairly new to the circuit. We had previously been in Wiltshire for just under 40 years where we both did our local preacher training. I was a chartered accountant in practice for many years and retired about 7 years ago. We have a son in Lincoln and our daughter lives in Canada with her husband and two children.

I have been a member of the Methodist Church since the age of 15; hence I feel the church is an important part of my family. I previously worked as a PA eventually taking on a role in hospitality and events management. I am a sister, aunty and great aunty to a very loving and supportive family.
