What do you enjoy most about your role?
The variety of things I get to do in it and the opportunity to learn about and share the work of organisations that, in many cases, can be life-changing for the people they work with.

How would you like to make a difference?
To help get the message out there that if you, or someone you know, needs help, advice or information when you are ready to talk there are organisations that can help.

What are your top 3 values?
1. Learning – It’s so important to me to keep learning, investigating, asking questions and being curious.
2. Kindness – Thinking about how I do what I do if there is a kind way to do it always do it that way. There’s no need for nastiness.
3. Stability – To strive to achieve it and provide it.

Joined the Helplines Partnership team: 9 January 2018
