About Women in Formation: For me, consecrated life is a way of following Jesus' commandments to love God with your whole heart and to love your neighbor as yourself. Living with my Sisters and welcoming guests to our monastery has allowed me to experience just how closely love of God and love of neighbor are related. Monastic life is a continual call to growth and conversion, at the heart of which is the God who is love.
Hobbies: My degrees are in English Literature and I often use my free time to read - novels, poetry, biography and history. When I get the chance to travel, I usually head for the art galleries and museums in London.
