Wife // Mom // Preacher // Life Coach // Founder & CEO Because Justice Matters

I’m a girl from a small village in the English countryside. My teen years were marred by self-hatred and fear, but God set about a transforming work in my life that freed me and gave me a passion to help others. At 18 I entered full-time ministry and traveled around the globe ministering in some of the most challenging urban contexts. It was in these brothels, slums and dark streets that I felt like I found my purpose. 


I’m passionate about women, justice, urban communities, and how they all intersect. I’m convinced that as women expand into leadership and develop their prophetic voice, we will see an incredible movement of God that brings His kingdom in fresh and dynamic ways to our cities. 


God’s heart is especially attuned to women who have experienced neglect, abuse and exploitation.  Jesus wasn’t hesitant to love women who had needs - in fact he sought them out. That’s why I started Because Justice Matters. To love women and girls so deeply that they would know their value, find their healing and be restored to a thriving life.  


For almost two decades San Francisco has been my home. Here I met and married my husband Brian and gave birth to two special boys,  Keilan and Phoenix. We are committed to being an urban family, serving and loving one another and the community around us.
