Life Choices Coach, Learning Support Mentor and Project Supporter

What do you love about working with bemix?

bemix is very inclusive and promotes equal opportunities for everybody regardless of ability. This is something I am very passionate about. I really enjoy all the different roles I can get involved in too.

How long have you been involved with bemix?

I applied for my first role as support cover in 2018 and have got more involved year by year.

What is your role in bemix?

I have several roles within bemix. I am a supporter with Discovery Catering. I am a Life Choices Coach. I am Eco Lead alongside Leila and I have just started the new role of Learning Support Mentor.

What did you do before you joined bemix?

Before I joined bemix I worked in a small respite unit for adults with learning disabilities for around 18 years, it was there I met many of the people who access bemix. I also spent a year working at a farm/day centre. I used to do bar work evenings and weekends too which was great fun.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I enjoy spending time with my children at weekends. I have an allotment where I grow vegetables and relax. I enjoy swimming a couple of times a week to keep fit and chill. I have a dog, Tim, and we go out for beach and country walks. I love making things, my favourite things to do are crochet and knit.
