I grew up in Salisbury and after completing my GCSE’s with reasonable passes I realised that I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do, so I enrolled in a YTS scheme, after two years of trying various jobs I began a career as a CAD artist and engineer within the automotive industry.
I married, divorced had my first child and married again, moving up to Milton Keynes and inheriting 3 full time step children and here my life changed dramatically
Having married a farmer and moved onto the farm it was inevitable that I would get sucked into the world of farming and away from the CAD world. After juggling both careers I realised that I enjoyed farming so much more and so threw myself into a new career in agriculture.
I joined Worktree (Countec back then) as a volunteer going into primary school in 2009 to talk about Farming and agriculture, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it remarkably rewarding. From there I moved on to volunteering to talk to older students in the Career Workout setting and now I am very happy to join the Worktree team as a Facilitator.
In my spare time (what little I have) I enjoy keeping fit through HIIT, Reading and as I like helping people I engage in a variety of volunteer work when I can, I always have a house full of children.
