I am a local quine who is enthusiastic about being part of our community. I am actively involved as a volunteer in a variety of groups in the local area. I enjoy being involved with Deveronvale Football Club and the opportunities that brings. I have three grown up children and am delighted to have become a granny earlier this year.
After leaving school I gained qualifications in Childcare and Early Years learning development at Moray College. I gained experience of working with children and families as I took on the role of nanny privately. After having children of my own, I returned to work at Banff Primary and Whitehills Playgroup where I went on to achieve certification at SVQ 2 and SVQ3 level through my role at Whitehills Playgroup. I remained in the role of Childcare Practitioner in Whitehills for 15 years. In 2010, my husband and I were delighted to be accepted as foster carers by Aberdeenshire council and this has brought us many learning opportunities and challenges. I was delighted to be accepted for the position of Family Support Worker at Home-
