I am married to Scott and have one teenage daughter Jodie, whom I am sure some of you can relate to the pleasures of bringing up a teenager. In my spare time I enjoy exercise, and attend classes twice a week, I also go jogging three times a week, I will never make a Paula Radcliffe but this is something I enjoy very much and would not like to give up and will continue for as long as possible.

I have 20 years experience in retail but felt this was not for me I felt that the pressure of sales targets was taking over customer care. I wanted a job improving people's lives giving people information and choice letting them decide on what they wanted. I have worked for the Independent Living Parnership since it was first established and during my time with the company have gained knowledge and experience from sales support to assessing people's equipment needs. I have recently completed a Trusted Assessor course which I thoroughly enjoyed and feel I now have the knowledge and skills to justify my position within the company. I am lucky to have my family around me for support and advice when needed.
