It has been a pleasure to experience the rhythms and heart of Encounter in so many ways already this year. I have been particularly impressed with how truly and wholeheartedly the staff, students and parents embrace and embody the sense of ‘home’ which I heard about long before arriving here!

I hail from the southern suburbs of Adelaide. Each day, I enjoy the long drive, a glorious
sunrise and a hard-to-swallow sermon with my first travel-mug of coffee. I am passionate about attention to detail, going the extra mile, the perfect burger, and all things creative – but above and beyond, I am passionate about
Jesus. I have been involved in overseas mission trips on almost every continent, leading teams of teenagers to the far corners of a world in need. I love the adventure of following Jesus, and teaching – and look forward to the year ahead, particularly exploring more of the
opportunities that Encounter has as a Lutheran school.
