Where do you come from?
You're going to wish you hadn't asked this! I've lived in Walsden, Todmorden since 2005, before that I was in London for 18 years. Prior to this we lived in Wales for 3 years, Oxford for 7 and I was born in Buckinghamshire!
What church are you part of?
I belong to the Todmorden United Benefice, which consists of three Church of England churches in Cornholme, Todmorden and Walsden.
What is your funniest experience working with young people?
Seeing the look of horror on their faces every time I've mentioned the 'sex' word in a teaching context! Teaching about circumcision in RE to a group of teenage boys is equally funny!
What is your favourite place in the world?
I especially love Glen Coe in Scotland and Lake Bled in Slovenia. Give me mountains and lakes and I'm a happy woman.
Who is your hero?
Jesus from reality, Buffy the Vampire Slayer from fiction.
What are the five things you couldn't live without?
- My dog
- My own space
- Gluten free bread
- Access to the great outdoors
- My bed
What is your favourite bible verse?
Psalm 139:14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.
What do you love about working for CICS?
The chance to encourage and work with other Christians to share the Bible and hope of Christianity with schools. The opportunity to excite and interest children in faith.
