I've been a volunteer chaplain since the Hospice at Home team was formed in 2012. It was the Bishop of Lynn's suggestion and I happily became licensed to minister at the Hospice - my first position since being ordained. My background is in education, working as a primary school head teacher and as an associate Early Years adviser - and running my own education business in Cambridge. I also curate at Gayton Parish Church.

At the Queen Elizabeth Hospital I'm a paid member of the chaplaincy team - so this, and the voluntary work I do for the Hospice, has given me a greater understanding of the spiritual perspective at end of life and the pastoral needs of people and their families.
