I was born in Thornton, near Blackpool. On leaving school I worked for the same company for 20 years, I worked my way up, the day I handed my notice in to say I was leaving to go to Bible College was the day they offered me the Buyer's Job which would have meant travelling around the world to different Trade Fairs, but I knew God was calling me to go to Cliff College.
My Christian journey started at a young age, I became a member when I was 11, my journey hasn't always been easy, I'm thankful that God has placed the right people alongside me who have listened, supported and guided me. It's through these conversations that I trained to be a Local Preacher, went to Cliff College and have come to the job I do now which I truly believe is my vocation.
While at Cliff (1994/95) I finished my Local Preacher training and studied for the 'Certificate in Biblical & Evangelistic Ministry'. It was while at Cliff I met my husband Steve who was from Cornwall, to be honest we didn't like each other to begin with! Steve was able to get a job in Bradford and so I moved over to Yorkshire after we married in August 1996.
We have one daughter Sarah who is married to Suf and we have 2 young Grandsons Isaaq and Zidan.
