"After serving as an operational Firefighter for 29 years I moved into First Aid / Fire training. This background of working with people, often in distressing circumstances, allied with the skills I acquired throughout my service, reinforce how valuable good training is in saving lives. These experiences now give me the ability to pass on this knowledge in an enjoyable and rewarding way."
Having worked for many years as a qualified nurse specialising in Orthopaedics and Spinal Injuries I qualified as a teacher in 2002 and worked in the adult sector delivering a variety of Public service and Public sector programmes.
