Having trained in Arts therapies and community education, I started working life teaching adults with learning disabilities, then moved on to working with teenage parents with Nacro. I have enjoyed working with vulnerable young parents in my role as a community project coordinator with Ormiston. During my time as a carer for my daughter I have undertaken voluntary roles within the community, setting up and running a community group (Dare to be different) for families of children and young people with disabilities, which lead to a role as Chair for Little Miracles Bourne. Through these roles along with parenting a child with learning disabilities, as well as managing a ‘spirited’ toddler I have developed many transferrable skills, which I look forward to using in my new role with ‘Every-One’.
What people appreciate about me
I feel that people appreciate my honesty, enthusiasm and genuine care for others. I am a good listener and highly self-motivated. I have a creative flair and love to design and make things. I have a desire to learn and self-improve (continually) and am always eager to do so. I think people feel that I can be relied upon to get things done.
What is important to me
My two unique girls, Isabelle and Amalie…we have a very close bond and are a fantastic team. I am very blessed to have a supportive family, we may not all live nearby to one another, however we are very close. My amazing friends who I am so grateful to have, who know me so well! Also my love of being creative…I make and sell fairies and enjoy escaping in the process! Continuing my education and work that is line with my core beliefs and values and in which I can make a difference to people’s lives.
How to support me
I sometimes do not get a lot of sleep…so I need lists and reminders…Sometimes there is a lot to remember.
