I joined the team in 2009 as a Saturday volunteer, as part of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, whilst at school.
Once I had completed my DofE I stayed with the centre and progressed to helping on the Fundraising Team and becoming a "Training Coach". I took a short break for a while due to a change in job roles and returned to coaching upon my return as well as becoming a Trustee / Director, to get more involved in the day to day management of the centre. I was previously the New Volunteer Coordinator and now Chair our Coaching Committee and run our social media and website.
In my professional role I work in the retail banking industry starting off by serving customers in our local Bedford branch before taking on a Trainer role, Branch Manager and more recently a Project Manager role in our IT retail team. I have also worked as part of the banks LGBT+ people network leading the involvement in the first MK Pride for 2019.
