Tell us a bit about yourself (family/work etc)
I'm married to Adam, 24yrs and counting! and we have three awesome children; Joshua & Lauren who are grown ups and Warwick who's only 9 and was born in the USA, he's our most expensive souvenir from our time living in the America! I live in a household of strong artistic characters with great humour so it can be loud and a little crazy at times. 

For work - I've been at Edit Websites since December 2017 and I'm now leading the Sales and Marketing team and have the opportunity to support the local church everyday within my workplace which is a blessing. Prior to Edit Websites I was working in local church for the last 15 years, some of that time as a worship Pastor so I've experienced both sides of church life, full time leadership and membership which gives me a helpful perspective in my new role. 

What’s a typical day for you
Working with the team on; the sales and marketing plans for iKnow Church and Church Edit so we can spread the word!, preparing for training events around the country and exhibits, building new strategic partnerships, meeting with church leaders on how we can help them, supporting churches who are trialling our software and making cups of tea to keep the workers going throughout the day!  

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Spending time with my family whilst eating great food and watching a movie is a perfect night in plus I really enjoy the outdoors, walking and talking with a flask of coffee! and I can't miss out the fun of rehearsing with worship teams, preparing to lead worship for special events and services...I really love to sing and to worship with great friends.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
If you know me then you already know I love music as I'm constantly singing or humming a tune! I lead worship with Christ for All Nations UK and have also had the joy of writing vocal arrangements for choirs, worship albums and big events. When I get the chance, I love to teach and train worship teams in being a great team player and bringing their best! I’ve started writing a book but I’m not sure I’ll ever finish it! And I grew up as an artist, loving to paint in my teens but now my artistic efforts go into making the best Macaroni cheese you’ll ever taste as well as sweet pumpkin pie and American Cheesecake! I really love to host and feed people! 

Do you have a favourite travel destination?
I can't pick just one as I love cultures, food and landscape, but some of my top pics would be; Africa for the sunsets and safari, Greece for the ocean and wine, Spain for it's language and Paella, America for its diversity and the steak is divine! I've never been to Italy and that's at the top of my list to visit in the future.
