Over 10 years.
Supporting foster parents with their growth and understanding, and watching our young people flourish.
Working with the amazing foster parents, team and young people.
I have been fortunate to have had a lot of memorable moments during my career, however one that comes to mind first is devising and delivering the SMILE training with Aly Thompson, our Therapeutic Lead. It has been great to see this put into action in the fostering home and how positive this has been for foster parents and young people.
I like to go to the gym, go paddle boarding or crocheting.
