Drop in Manager
I have been working with young people for the past 19 years, 15 of them at POINT! I have a BA Hons Degree in Youth and Community Work.
I hate the cold and snow is my worst nightmare! I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping and listening to “The 1975” at very high volumes.
I joined POINT in March 2023 as a Finance Officer and am currently in the final year of my AAT accounting studies. Beyond completion of my AAT qualification, I am looking to continue my finance studies further.
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, hiking and watching the Arsenal games.
I have been working for POINT for many years, but have over 20 years experience in youth work. I have a level 3 diploma in health and social with children and young people, Level 4 Advice and Guidance and my Youth Work Level 3 qualification.
