Ordained by the Leo Baeck College in 1987, I began my life as a working rabbi only seven months after beginning my life as a working mother. Having worked full time as the only rabbi of a medium sized community for fifteen years, I moved to pioneer the model of a job sharing rabbinate with Rabbi Sybil Sheridan. We successfully worked together for over eleven years and the synagogue we jointly ministered to is a thriving, learning, fully functioning Jewish community with a full programme of adult education as well as children’s learning, and everything one would expect from a healthy Jewish community.

I am mother to three, and juggle rabbinic work with my community with a number of other interests such as developing liturgies and rituals, information governance, keeping up with medical ethical issues, voluntary chaplain in a number of local hospitals and hospices, writing, personal study, daf yomi, and the needs of home and family, including husband, two dogs and a cat.
