Affiliated with British Heart Foundation




I was born in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, but I have lived in East Anglia for most of my life. I am married to John, and have two children and nine grandchildren.

My working career has been varied. I began work at the UK Atomic Energy Authority dealing with radioactive elements for use in medicine,followed by a stint in banking.

When my children began school, I decided on another career change, and trained to

Teach, gaining my B.Ed at UEA in Norwich and subsequently a certificate focussing on children with special needs at the Cambridge Institute.

I taught for a number of years and loved every minute. It was satisfying to see children who struggled with learning achieve their potential- and many did so.

I guess seeing the struggles of children and their families, led me to want to help more.

I re trained again! This time as a Methodist minister at Wesley House in Cambridge.

I have served in Dereham, Swaffham, Hunstanton, March and latterly locally in

The Lowestoft circuit. During that time I have been chaplain to Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice, Tapping House Hospice, A Methodist Home for the elderly,

And now with St Elizabeth’s Hospice. I have also been involved in setting up a

Hostel for those suffering Domestic Violence. I feel my ministry is focussed on

Helping people at times of crisis and providing a listening ear to people of any faith or none.

I have had two heart attacks myself and some surgery, so I know first hand something

Of the problems that can pose for the patient and their families in times of illness.

My role as chaplain to Heartcare is to be here for YOU! Please do not hesitate to contact me
