Role at Ridley:

Administrative Receptionist

hk414After 30 years of working in nursing and reception in and around Cambridge, I decided to concentrate on the reception side of things and joined Ridley Hall staff in 2016. As well as reception, I give sabbatical administration support to Philip Jenson.
 
I’m still a registered dental implant nurse, of which I keep my hand in some weekends with a morning of dental nursing. I also keep up my professional registration and strive to do my continued professional development hours as required.
 
I’m proud to be born and raised in Cambridge. I married Terry and we have 4 grown up children.

gail adams

Gail Adams is Acting Chaplain to the community at Ridley Hall, working with our Honorary Chaplain, Ian Randall, to offer chaplaincy cover during Anne Aldridge’s absence.

Gail is spiritual mentor, life coach, retreat leader and partner in the Beloved Life project. Her passion is to nurture daily patterns of stillness, presence and self-awareness.

Gail writes, "I love this quote by Desmond Tutu and try to bring the spirit of this to all my conversations; 'We all blossom in the presence of one who sees the good in us and who can coax the best out of us...' In the grace of God, may it be so.”

Gail is married to Ian (Ridley’s tutor in context-based training and pioneer learning). They have grown up children and have recently become grandparents.
