A little more about me...

I have been living in New Zealandsince 2008. Coming from Northern Ireland and being born in Staffordshire England.

Customer care is where I have employed my services throughout my working life - Nurse, Chaplain, Psychotherapist, Facilitator, Realestate Consultant. I was a Religous sister for 7 years (Anglican Fransciscan order).

I have known the depths of my own grief journey through the loss of parents, husband and dear friends.

I have travelled extensively and have learnt that embracing diversity and finding a place of heart felt generosity is what brings life and fulfilment.

I am deeply committed to a rhythm that supports both my acitive particiapiton in the world and also my enduring faith as a contemplative/solitary. Grounded in a simple daily practise that holds time for prayer, intercession and contemplation at its heart.

I am a keen hiker and take time out each year for bush walking.

This year I am exploring 21 century anchorites and how the contemplative way of life speaks in and to our world.
