I was born into and baptised at Christ Church Dingley.  When I was 9 years old, my family moved away from the area, and I lost connection with CCD.

I married in my early 20s and within a year, we moved to WA where I studied Human Movement and Exercise Physiology.  It was a time of great opportunities for us, and 3 years turned into ten.  When we returned to Melbourne, we had one small child and another on the way.  Several years later, the Lord led me back to Christ Church Dingley, and it felt like coming home.  I found a great community and connections here and have continued to worship at CCD ever since.  When the position of admin/receptionist came up I felt called to put my hand up and began working in the office in March 2023.

We have spent many summers as a family surfing at Phillip Island and are very involved with ice hockey.  I love to be in nature, be it beach or bush.  I love to cook.  Our children are no longer small, and life is ever changing.  Throughout life’s challenges, God has been good.
