Married to Geoff, with two adult children, Debbie was ordained in 2012 after completing a Master of Theological Studies. While she trained as a secondary school English teacher, she has spent most of her adult life in some form of Christian ministry. This has included overseas mission service in the Philippines, eleven years in school chaplaincy with ACCESS ministries, and church based pastoral ministry.
Debbie has a wide range of interests which include art, theatre and film, creative embroidery and patchwork, gardening and travel. She relishes opportunities to enjoy both the natural beauty of God’s creation and the colourful and rich expressions of human-made cultural … which, of course, includes good coffee and food!
