After 30 years of working in nursing and reception in and around Cambridge, Helena decided to concentrate on the reception side of things and joined the Ridley Hall staff in 2016. As well as working on reception, she provides administrative support for the Refreshment Programme, liaising with and welcoming those who spend time at Ridley during sabbaticals, career breaks or other periods of retreat or study.
Helena is still a registered dental implant nurse, a skill she keeps up on some weekends with a morning of dental nursing. She also maintains her professional registration and strives to undertake her continued professional development hours as required.
Helena is proud to be born and raised in Cambridge. She is married to Terry, and they have four grown-up children.
