Bea began working at St Augustine’s in the summer of 2016, just prior to its move to West Malling. In November, she was appointed Academic Registrar.

She was licensed as a Lay Minister by Bishop James Langstaff in 2015. Bea has the greatest admiration for all who work at St Augustine’s in whatever capacity, having had first-hand experience of the formational process.

She has responsibility for the smooth running of Moodle (our Virtual Learning Environment), trying it a more intuitive and pleasurable experience for all.

Bea lives in West Malling, so can walk to the offices in the abbey grounds. In her free time, she loves singing, gardening, cooking, writing, spending time with her family and being run ragged by her grandchildren.
