I started at the beginning with Devon Training Hub  as Programme Administrator.  I am currently employed as Work Experience Manager for 4 days a week, and I work on the Finance for Devon Training Hub 1 day a week. 

My aim is to be the go between person between schools and students to assist in finding quality experiences within a Primary Care Setting.  I am working with both Primary and Secondary Schools to provide resources, equipment and experiences to their students.

I am hoping to also work alongside the Princes Trust, local job centres and other Primary Care providers to enable placements and experiences with adults looing for work and those who want a career change.

I live in Cornwall, just outside of St Mellion with my partner, a total empty nester but still have great contact with all my five children and 7 grandchildren who all still live in Plymouth area.

I love helping out with charity events and raising much needed funds for local and national charities. I like to keep myself fit and healthy and walk rather than drive at every opportunity.

I have been carrying out administration and financial roles over 37 years in various organisations and have been working within the NHS for nearly 6 years.

I am a Mental Health First Aider and an Ambassador for Proud to Care.

I look forward to working alongside all of the primary care staff, schools, colleges, universities and all other organisations with Education and Primary Care.
