I have been working at Derby City Mission since 2013 as Operations Manager.  Ioversee operational aspects of all of our projects and the central administration functions, particularly finance, HR and governance.

Called to be an administrator at the age of 14, I have worked for Christian organisations like Scripture Union, Latin Link and my church, Derby City Church most of my professional life. I have a passion for knowing my Heavenly Father more and for encouraging others to find salvation and grow in faith in Christ.
