Where are you from?

I grew up in the St George area in a suburb called Kingsgrove.

Tell us about your family.

I am married to Paul and we have 4 boys who are growing into young men. I am a proud owner of my labradoodle Jasper & Sam the cat.

How’d you come to know Jesus?

I was invited by my friend to attend church with her, I went regularly for 3 years because the people were lovely. I surrendered my life to Jesus after it was explained clearly just “ hanging out “ at church didn’t mean I had a relationship with God.

What did you do before you became a pastor?

I am a wife, a mother, a sister a daughter & friend as well as a registered nurse. I continue to be all these things whilst serving Christ and his people at NewLife.

What inspires you about this role?

I find nothing more encouraging than spending time with my brothers in Christ as we support each other in our walk with the Lord . What a privilege it is to be able sit, read, pray, cry and laugh with my church family as we point each other to Christ.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I love watching our boys play sport with their buddies and I also like to hang out with my family at home including my many animals around the home.
