As someone who has worked within the charity sector for over twenty years, this has given me a wide range of experience and knowledge of different client groups.
The services I have managed are:
• Residential rehab for addiction
• Supported housing for women with mental health issues
• Day centre for the elderly with dementia
• Long term housing for adults with autism
• Mother and baby primary care
As a woman in my 50’s with various life experience this allows me to empathise and have compasion for others who may have had similar. Having come from a multi-cultural family with Irish roots this gives me a greater understanding of cultural diversity and a sense of belonging.
I am a spiritual person who has an interest in mindfulness, meditation and Yoga.
