About Me

I am a Social Work graduate of Robert Gordons University in Aberdeen. Currently I work for Aberlour Child Care Trust, the Scottish children's charity, as a young people's worker, in which I work with vulnerable and/or at risk young people. Previous to attending university I attained my HNC Early Education and Child Care at Moray College and worked as a Nursery Nurse for Moray Council at Millbank Primary / Nursery School. I have also worked as a classroom assistant at St Peters Nursery and Primary School, and finally I worked within Millbank Primary / Nursery School as an Education Auxillary which included working one on one with children with additional support needs and behavioural problems.

I also worked as Duty Manager of a creche in Aberdeen whilst at university.

I have done a lot of volunteer work both with children and within the community over the years.

I am an extremely family oriented person. I love to try my hand at new things, especially when it comes to experiences and activities.

My hobbies and interests include spending time outdoors activities (going for walks, playing sports etc), music, going to gigs/festivals, reading, travelling and experiencing different cultures and ways of life.

I am a registered social worker with the SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council) and have an up to date PVG.
