Place of Work: Milton Park Therapeutic Campus

How did you get into your job: I was working in a school for Autistic children as a care worker. One day I saw a lady working with a child in the sensory room. The child was on a swing and she was playing with different textures. I was fascinated and asked the lady what she was doing. She told me that she was an Occupational Therapist and that she was assessing the child to see what helped her to keep calm. I did some research into Occupational Therapy. I joined the degree course a year later.

Who do you admire: Temple Grandin. I admire her tenacity and determination in the face of adversity, her insight and advice on sensory issues and ideas on how we can improve communication with individuals with Autism, including how they see and react to the world around them.

What motivates you: Making the most of life and supporting others to do the same.

Unusual thing about you: I have a degree in theatre, media and drama.
