What do you do at Carefree? 

I am a 16+ Personal Advisor and I also help to run the 16+ drop in at St Austell on Wednesdays. 

What do you like about working at Carefree? 

I love being part of what all of Carefree offers to children and young people. I love that being part of Carefree feels like family and that I meet so many amazing young people who often become familiar faces over time. 

Can you say a bit about your past experience and qualifications? 

I have done a degree in Health and Social Care and have been working as a PA in the 16+ Team for the past 9 years. Before doing my degree and becoming a PA, I worked with Adults who have learning disabilities and I also did some waitressing.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?  

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my 3 children being a mum which keeps me very busy! At weekends I enjoy going for walks and exploring the local beaches and woodlands. When I get the time to relax, I love to read a good book or watch a new series on Netflix!
