It is a privilege to work with vulnerable adults and my role as a Personal Assistant is to support my clients to achieve their goals and live more fulfilling lives. Whether it is completing household tasks or finding local activities of interest my aim is always to improve the quality of life and emotional wellbeing of clients.
I enjoy family life in Seaford and spending free time exploring the Sussex countryside and coastal beauty spots. I have a keen interest in several sports and enjoyed my role as a football coach for a local youth team in Brighton.
As a school governor I gained the skills to advocate for young people, to listen to their needs, communicate well with others and work within a legal framework .
As a transfer manager for several language schools in East Sussex I have extensive experience of working with adults from different nationalities ensuring their safety and wellbeing when they arrive in the UK.
I previously worked in banking in my younger years and gained good logistical, organisational and planning skills.
