Hi there, this is my fourth year as the Retreats, Facilities and Hospitality Co-ordinator, and it is a truly wonderful job.

I’m originally from the Parish of Our Lady and All Saints Basildon, and I was 15 when I first came to Walsingham House on Canvey as part of a Confirmation retreat with the parish.  I was really inspired, and I spent a volunteer gap year on the 2013-14 Team. I then completed a law degree at Nottingham University and before moving to Abbotswick I spent a year working for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
