I was brought up in Hereford where my family attended St John's Methodist Church.
I married Barry, a Lancashire man, so moved to Burnley at 21. We became members of Ightenhill Methodist where we were actively involved and I became a Local Preacher. I was a Civil Servant until our children were born, then worked for the family road haulage company.
I eventually responded to God's call to Ministry. We have been stationed in: the Birstall & Spen Circuit (now North Kirklees & Morley) 2002; Kidderminster & Stourport 2007; Runcorn 2013, where I was Superintendent; now Superintendent of Stoke-on-Trent South Circuit since 2018. I was appointed as Deputy Chair of the District in 2014.
I am here to support and assist the District Chair and am part of the District Leadership Team.
