I joined Catalyst in September 2017 and I have lived in Bere Alston all my life.  I am studying a theology degree with Moorlands College which I aim to complete this year. I am keen on sports – particularly basketball.

I am excited to take on a full-time one year contract with Catalyst as I complete my degree this year.

I joined Catalyst as a trainee Youth Worker In December 2020 and I look forward to spending the next year working with Catalyst. Ive grown up in Wadebridge Cornwall. I am excited for the new challenge and can’t wait to see what God does whilst I am with you. I am completing my “Be transformed course” and taking on a 3 year BA this year while continuing to work with Catalyst.

In my free time I love playing netball, going in the sea and walking my puppy.
