Previously, I worked within the TEFL industry, travelling around the world and teaching Academic English in a range of settings including universities in Tokyo, Warsaw, London, Swansea and Cardiff. A recent career change has brought me into the care sector with M&D Care, where I can utilise the research skills I obtained on my MA, by analysing data and developing positive behaviour plans to support our service users. I’m currently studying on the Professional Diploma in PBS. I also believe that my skills and experience as a Teacher in a variety of contexts have enabled me to conscious of individual needs and the process of communication and mutual adaptation required.
Although a new role and field for me, I’m developing a passion for the service and support we as a department provide. One aspect which I particularly like is working together with a wide range of colleagues, professionals, care teams, families and ultimately the service users themselves to deliver the best care possible. This working together is the very definition of active support.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
