Since joining Carr Gomm in 2007, I’ve had the opportunity to move through different parts of the organisation.

I spent the first two years as a support practitioner in the Glasgow South East service, working with a great team and supporting people in very challenging circumstances. I really enjoyed this role as I was able to work with people directly to improve their quality of life.

I was then an acting senior for a short period before joining the business development team as a projects officer. This was a great step for me as I was able to see how support works across the organisation and how Carr Gomm runs as a national organisation.

After this, I returned to Glasgow and managed the North West service for a period, before becoming an acting operations manager. Now, I support managers and services across Glasgow and Stirling.

I feel very privileged to do the job I do. I see the fantastic, sometimes very challenging work that people carry out every day despite their own difficulties and the great outcomes this achieves.

In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family, watch movies, read and exercise.
