Tell us a bit about yourself, who you are, where have you come from?

I am from and live in Aberdeen. For the past 10 years I ran my childminding business, but due to the pandemic we closed down. My back ground is in social work, I have worked in mental health and child protection.

What made you want to work for Clan?

Clan has such a good reputation and with my background in social work, counselling and childminding it felt like a good match to come here. I so enjoy working with children and families, and doing direct therapeutic work with children, so I am delighted to have got the job.

How did you end up in this line of work?

When I left school I got a place on the social work course, but I almost became a librarian! My first job once I qualified was at Cornhill Hospital. I have also worked with the Pre-School Play Association, Barnardo’s and various jobs within the social work department.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I am a huge Doctor Who fan!

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I really wanted to be an author when I was younger.

Who is your hero?

Definitely Agatha Christie!

Can you give us two truths and one lie about yourself?

1. I am a Nana

2. I am a bit of a gamer, my favourite is Super Mario Galaxy

3. I play the accordion.

Sadly I cannot play the accordion. I am very good at Mario Galaxy though!
