At six years old I knew I wanted to be a ballerina – bit cliché I know! But my plans quickly changed. I took two years out of education, then graduated from a vocational university degree in Speech Therapy that I never used (face palm!). Roll on a few years and here I am – having figured out what I’m good at, and what I love doing, helping mums find work that works for them, around their family.

In my 9-5 job I’m a Work Coach for a charity, supporting vulnerable people to return to the workplace. I really love helping people realise that they are unique and valuable, understanding what they’re naturally good at, defining their goals, figuring out what success looks like, and helping them take focused steps to create that success in their life. I love helping people find work that works for them.
