My whole career has been in the care sector, predominantly with adults and young people with learning disabilities and autism. My career started as a nursing assistant in the long stay hospitals and I'm currently writing an autism strategy and developing a specialist learning disability team for a local authority. I've also just completed a detailed report in terms of people with autism and services available in Mental Health services.
I am passionate about my work and offer 100% commitment to any work I undertake.
