BioI have worked for many years as an academic trained in the social sciences.  During my time at the university I informally provided spiritual guidance to colleagues as well as pastoral care for staff and students.
Parallel to my academic work I volunteered as a community pastoral worker, lay preacher (in my church) and associate chaplain (at the university)
I took up ministry as a full-time position 3 years ago. The main focus of my ministry has always been pastoral care and supporting people on their spiritual journey.
I have been receiving spiritual direction for about 10 years.I am currently completing the 34 week Ignatian retreat in daily life (The 19 Annotation)
Other CommentsI am described by friends, colleagues, and people I have provided guidance, as a person with the rare ability to mesh together an analytic stance with a compassionate heart
