I am happy to be joining St Matthew's from the parish of St John's Boxmoor - situated in my hometown of Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
As a recent graduate in Law from the University of Hertfordshire, I now welcome the opportunity to explore my vocation through the role of pastoral assistant.
Whilst at St John's I enjoyed being Head Chorister, gaining my RSCM Gold award, as well as the opportunity to attempt to play the organ for a number of services!
Whilst studying I worked with young people as an outdoor activity instructor at Phasels Wood activity centre over the weekends and holidays, where I taught activities such as archery, climbing, high ropes and zip wire along with other less glamorous tasks...
As I remained at home whilst studying, this will be the first time I have lived away from my Mum and three younger sisters. My sister Fiona is looking forward to this almost as much as I am - as she is taking over my room.
