Experience

I have had quite a varied career, starting off working in the building trade with my Dad. I then joined the Royal Marines, serving for 5 years. After this, I trained to be a teacher and continue to work occasionally as a supply teacher. Last year I spent time caring for my Dad, who had dementia and a brain tumour. I currently drive a minibus two days a week for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. I live with my partner, two dogs and two cats.
