Meet the Team

Hi I’m Beth, and I am the Project Lead for the Emerge Project at Frimley Park Hospital. I have worked with young people in various different contexts in the past and I love the unique opportunity that Emerge offers of being a youth worker in hospital. It is such a privilege to be a part of the team speaking hope into the lives of young people at their time of crisis, and getting to know some brilliant young people in the process! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading, making music (preferably when no one else is around!) and chilling out with my husband and dog.

Beth has worked in various youth work roles since 2012 and has an MA in Biblical Studies with a focus on worry/anxiety.

Hello! I am Jo and I am a sessional Youth Worker at the Frimley project. I am a huge people person and my favourite things to talk about include dogs and food (especially McDonalds!)
What I love about working at Emerge is the immense joy of being able to journey with young people in a time of need, being able to walk with them and guide them through adolescence is something everyone needs!
Jo has a Theology and Youth Ministry degree from St Mellitus, as well as being a trained Youth Pastor at a local church. Jo has experience working with both children and young people.

Hi, I’m Laurie-Ann, a Sessional Youth Worker for the Emerge project at Frimley Park Hospital. Alongside my work with Emerge I am a Youth Minister at a church in Berk-shire and a Dance Teacher.

I love the work I do, walking alongside young people, hearing their stories and encouraging them on their journey. I believe in the vision of Emerge and am passionate about being a voice of hope for young people during a time of crisis.

In my spare time I love going on walks in the countryside, learning new creative skills, hunting for the next best independent coffee shop with my Husband and eating good food with friends and family.

Hi I’m Lauren and I am a youth worker at Frimley Park Hospital. I know this hospital quite well because I had both my children there, and when one decided to stick polystyrene up his nose!
I love the work that Emerge do, as I know from my own life how important it is to be heard and listened to. I have also struggled with anxiety and had years of counselling, but can give hope to others, that life can be better again!
In my free time I like running, dancing, jigsaw puzzles and crosswords!!!
