I am currently a locum chaplain at Addenbrooke's and Royal Papworth Hospitals.
I was involved in youth work for Christian organisations both in the UK and overseas, before gaining a Bsc honours in occupational therapy.
As an occupational therapist I started in mental health at Fulbourn hospital, working across acute and rehabilitation settings. Later working in neuro rehabilitation.
After a bereavement experience I began to rethink my vocation. A meaningful personal encounter of chaplaincy support led to me exploring becoming a chaplain via volunteering here at Addenbrooke's hospital in 2017.
I later became a Chaplain in a residential care setting for the methodist housing association. Providing spiritual and pastoral care to elderly residents here for four years including during the pandemic. During this time I also undertook training with the Church of England to become a licensed lay minister for the diocese of Ely.
In my spare time , I enjoy volunteering for my local park run, playing guitar, singing, walking, spending time with family and friends and my two dogs.
