I have been working as a carer/PA since 2008, in a variety of different roles. I have held 4 long term placements, the longest being a 2 year stint for a lovely lady with complete paralysis.

I have experience with spinal injuries, CP, SMA, RSD and Austism, but realise that no two people EVER have the same needs, and always take on each new challenge as a blank slate........lets be honest, the only real expert in your care need is you.

I worked for 1 year as an emergency cover PA, which took me all over the UK and gave me experience with most catheters (including super pubic), access vehicles and hoists.

I was lucky enough to be trained by a power house of a disability awareness trainer and I make it my main focus is to remove barriers that crop up for my employer on a daily basis, and treat every person with dignity and respect.
