What is your background?

I joined the sector fresh from uni and I’ve been part of the Co-design & Improvement team at SYHA for over 3 years.  From the offset my career has had a very person centred focus – mentoring young people at risk of offending, supporting people living with enduring mental illness, running a community project around healthy eating and most recently, leading the co-design for the next phase of a project to reduce loneliness and isolation for people over the age of 50 in Sheffield.

What inspires you?

Seeing people achieve their potential, or even starting to work towards it is good enough for me!

What is your perfect weekend?

Brunch with family and friends, an out of town shopping trip and a nice bottle of wine to end the day…not before I’ve cleaned my house from top to bottom though, my weekend can’t start without a clean and tidy house!

What is your favourite thing about Co:Create?

I’m an extrovert, so a bit of team work with like-minded people is right up my street.  The Co:Create team are a brilliant bunch who really live and breathe the ethos of their work!

What’s your favourite movie?

I have two…my original favourite is Parent Trap with Lyndsey Lohan – I can probably still do the handshake! My other favourite is Step Brothers - ultimate belly laugh film!
