After working in banking, I made a complete career change and moved to working in Adult Social Care for over 5 years. I found that my true passion and vocation in life is helping others. My time in social care allowed me to experience first hand the importance of empowering people to make their own decisions and express their own wishes and views. It highlighted to me the role that family and friends play in caring for their loved ones and how invaluable the care they provide is. I am committed to giving carers a voice, raising awareness of the challenges they face and providing person-centred support. In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and learning new crafts – I take after my very creative Mum!
