Theresa Duff

Theresa Duff was born and educated in England. After completing her Bachelor of Arts degree in French Studies, she traveled to Belgium where she worked as a secretary and translator for several years before relocating to Qatar where she was employed by a Danish company there. Ultimately she returned to the United Kingdom and settled in Scotland where she has lived for the last thirty five years. Theresa currently works for a charity that supports both children and adults with learning disabilities. Her connection with the Sisters of Bon Secours began in 1991, when she was working at the Glascow Hospital as a Personal Assistant and Secretary to the Chief Executive, Sister Irene Jamieson, CBS. Shortly after the hospital closed in 2000, a Bon Secours Associate group was formed which she was invited to join. Theresa remains an active member of the Associate program today. She considers it a great privilege and source of spiritual support.
