Trusts & Foundations Officer

I hail from the sunny climes of Florida, bringing a warm enthusiasm to my role as the Trusts and Foundations Officer at St James’s Piccadilly. My journey to this vibrant community began while completing my master’s in Heritage Studies at the University of Cambridge. There, I delved into research on the community use and value of redundant churches across the UK. St James’s Piccadilly stood out as a beacon of what’s possible when an engaged community, stewards of faith, and a thoughtful capital campaign come together.

I am delighted to be working both on the Wren Project, securing the legacy of this historic church and fortifying it as a hub for creative programming and social engagement for generations to come; and on raising funds for St James’s vital outreach work in the community. Outside of my professional role, I enjoy the simple pleasures of tending to my garden, traversing the parks of London (tea in hand), and exploring my passion for the arts through painting and photography.
