Born and bred in Adelaide, love sport (especially footy,

cricket, tennis and basketball) and enjoy reading, walking, comedy shows, movies, travelling and spending time with my family. My favourite shops are Dymocks and

Haigh’s Chocolates.

I am married to Andrew and a mother of3 children aged 11, 14 and 16. We love living in West Beach and being a part of the

community here. I have been involved at WBPS as a parent and volunteer for the last 5 years.

For over 20 years I have worked in many ways with children and families including playgroups, Kids Clubs and various children’s programs.

I have been employed as a Pastor for the last 10 years and am passionate about helping children and families to grow and thrive.

I look forward to meeting you and serving the school community in my role as your Pastoral Care Worker.
