New Zealand

I was born in Switzerland. I am a secondary school teacher. In my late twenties I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. 

In 1993 I came to Bible school in New Zealand where I was introduced to Precept Bible Studies. PUP Judges was my first study ever. I was blown away as it described where I came from and the way out. I was hooked! 

After moving to New Zealand with my husband Peter, I became a Precept leader and a workshop trainer, and then later the national director for Precept New Zealand. 

I love watching people being transformed by God’s word, students and facilitators alike. Raising new leaders online has been most satisfying and fuels my passion empowering others to facilitate Precept Bible studies. 

In my leisure time, I love reading, baking, and going for bush walks.


“Nothing beats watching people being transformed by God’s word, both facilitators and students.”
