Helen grew up in Poole in Dorset and became a Christian in her early twenties whilst working onboard Cruise Liners in the Caribbean (a wonderful testimony of God’s father heart – she would be happy to share with you!).  Helen studied at Moorlands College for a degree in Applied Theology and Youth and Community Work. Returning a number of years later to complete an MA in Applied Theology in 2016.

Helen has worked in the Voluntary and Statutory Sector in Bournemouth for the past 25 years. Her roles have included working for the local Church, the Local Authority and other government services. Helen currently works part time for Moorlands College, where she oversees the Student Placements and lectures in Reflective Practice, youth work and community development. The rest of the week Helen and runs her own Fitness / Dance classes and Skin Care & Beauty Business.

She is a Trustee and Team leader for Coastline Vineyard Church in Bournemouth and is passionate about equipping men and women to find and fulfil their full potential in Christ.

She loves music, dancing and socialising – and most of all meeting new people and getting to hear their stories and adventures of life.
