I officially joined the team as the morning groom in 2019, during RDA’s 50th year. Although, my history with the centre goes back before becoming a groom.
Before coming to the centre as a groom I had done 21 years working at a local special needs school. I had various roles from bus driver, lifeguard & staff trainer and specialised in challenging behaviour & autism.
Over the years, I brought many students to the Elisabeth Curtis centre and have seen the place grow and the smile and difference it all makes.
As I mentioned my history with the centres goes further back than when I joined as a groom. I was a Saturday volunteer in about 2008 and before that in the 80s I was a volunteer.
I grew up with horses and ponies at home & enjoyed showjumping and gymkhanas. I worked on racing yards from a young age and went over to Spain to work on a stud farm.
I’ve been lucky enough to now be working back in the enviroment that I love with some very special four legged superstars!!
