Jane was elected churchwarden in 2020. She was born and educated in Headington. Her family have been worshiping at St Andrew's for over 70 years and all family rites of passage were celebrated in the church including her own baptism. So although she mainly lived in London, she has always felt St Andrew's to be her church family.
After school, Jane achieved her long held dream of studying Medicine. She qualified as a doctor from The University of London (King's College) and then trained as an Anaesthetist and enjoyed a busy career in front line medicine.
Her Headington roots remained deep and she finally returned to the family home in 2010, so her 2 children could complete their schooling in Oxford and so she give extra support to her widowed mother. She continued to work full time in London but was able to gradually become involved in the local community. Jane retired in 2019 and now has time to enjoy new friends and new activities.
Her interests are varied, enjoying cooking, the creative arts including sewing and gardening. She passionately believes in the importance of caring for the environment, supporting the community and looking after our physical and mental wellbeing.
Jane feels hugely privileged to serve as churchwarden, and is looking forward to becoming more involved and getting to know everyone better.
