How did you become a social worker?
I became a social worker whilst I was serving in the Women’s Royal Naval Service as a personnel and Family support worker. I trained and qualified whilst still serving in the Royal Navy at Bristol University in 1997.
Most rewarding aspect of your job?
Observing how a child ‘blossoms’ in the care of our foster carers and seeing them experiencing new and exciting experiences that they may never had the opportunity to do before.
Do you have any pets or favourite animal?
I am a great lover of most animals but my favourite is my cockapoo – Molly Moo!
What makes the ideal foster carer household?
Someone who is resilient, open, kind and able to recognize and celebrate the smallest of achievements, which can be the best of achievements.
