I have worked in Health and Social Care supporting people for over 23 years and during that time have gained valuable insight, skills and knowledge which I like to share with others.
I envisage a life filled with purpose and meaning, where I can make a difference in the lives of others.
I will prioritise my relationships with loved ones and dedicate my time and resources to helping those in need.
You can often find me walking on the beach near to where I live with my two dogs, Tucker and kia Staffordshire bull terriers who I rescued.
I practise Ashtanga Yoga, enjoy Pilates and swimming to keep fit and promote good well being and mental health. I love to cook, enjoy healthy eating and like to promote this at home and in the workplace.
