Tell us a little bit about yourself – your work background, your interests…

I am a student social worker studying at UWE currently on my final placement within the MASH.

In the past I have worked with children in different organisations and have spent some time volunteering in Morocco. Here I visited children’s orphanages, fed the homeless, worked in Mother and children activity groups, helped make schools an appropriate space for children to learn in and also took part in street work with children.

I have a passion for sport and in particular netball, I am a qualified coach and run my own netball club with around 50 young people where we enter competitions and leagues in South Wales. The teams have been very successful with the under 15’s and under 11’s teams winning their summer league.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, attending festivals and travelling.

Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?

One thing that would probably make me laugh if it came back into fashion is crimped hair.

What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?

If I was on a deserted Island I would make sure I have music, a deck chair and a lilo.

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

I have slept on the streets of Bristol to raise money for the homeless and climbed to the top of the tallest waterfall in Morocco which is pretty daring for me.

What’s the best thing about working at Wiltshire Council?

The best thing for me about working at Wiltshire Council is having the opportunity to work alongside other professionals (Police, Early help, Social Workers, Health) and learning more about their roles and involvement in children services. I really enjoy completing pieces of work that have required all our involvement and have demonstrated successful multi agency working.
