Helping to turn negatives into positives wherever possible.

We deal with lots of staff, what impresses you about your colleagues?
Knowing I am working with a team that will go that extra mile to help and encourage not only the families and young people we work with but also each other.
 
I find it hard to say no . . . when anyone needs help.

One of the things I’m very good  is adapting myself to fit in with any situation.

 
The best piece of advice I heard was . . . always treat people how you would like to be             treated yourself.
