When I left school I studied catering for two years and worked in a hotel as a chef but my dream job at that time was to be a Home Economics teacher. After I had my children I decided I would like to work with children so I went back to college to do a diploma In Early Years Childcare and Education.

You probably know that I love cooking but I am also an animal lover. People call me the cat lady as I have FIVE cats (and a lovely Labrador called Olly – named after Olly Murs of course!)

Young Carers' Support Worker

I’ve been working for the Young Carers’ Project since March 2021! I studied Criminology at University, and then completed my Master’s degree in Forensic Mental Health as I was fascinated by the root causes of human behaviour. I have always loved working with children, having worked with many in my previous role as a Dance Teacher and I have done lots of volunteer work at Recovery Services.
 
In my spare time I love singing, dancing, and writing poetry/music. I find these the most effective and enjoyable ways to express myself. I am passionate about helping others, especially children, because their childhood experiences can significantly impact their adulthood.

Mentoring Co-ordinator

I joined the YCP in July 2021. I have worked in a variety of community roles within the charity sector as well as been a volunteer for ‚Äča wide range of programmes. From being a research assistant in the Amazon rainforest working with primates, volunteering at an orphanage in Uganda to my most recent experience of being a volunteer mentor where I was matched with a vulnerable young person. Being a mentor has been one of my most rewarding experiences so far and I am looking forward to recruiting a team of passionate volunteers who will make a positive difference to the lives of young carers and vice versa!  

I love travelling, walking my dog ‘Walnut’, spending time with family and am a big Joe Wicks fan!
