I was born in Torquay ( Devon) and spent almost two years of my life there before my parents decided to relocate to the South of Spain.
I taught myself how to read and write English, using Spanish to phonetically sound out the words till they made sense, though I still struggle with Dyslexia. I was a professional Flamenco dancer for 15 years, and I loved every second of it, though I have terrible stage fright and could never speak in front of an audience, dancing was different, the audience didn't exist, only the music.
At 18 I got my degree in Office Management, though I rarely made use of it, working where I could find employment, from beach-side restaurant kitchens to holiday home cleaning.
I finally decided that I wanted to do something more with my life, so, in 2012, with my last 300€, I booked myself a flight to the UK and signed up to train as a carer.
I haven't looked back since. Though being a carer wasn't my "calling", I do feel I belong in the care industry. I love what I do and I could never imagine myself in any other profession.
I've been part of the ANGELS Family since June 6th 2014.
You, our members, are important to me. If you are ill, I will call whoever is on duty for an update; if you have had some good news, I smile and celebrate that.
I'm an animal obsessive (I have two rescue dogs), I love to cook and bake, I enjoy a good debate accompanied by a nicely aged Bourbon, I am a believer in freedom of expression and I love to read.
