I am a newly qualified social worker. Through my work as a support worker, I quickly learned that I wanted to develop my training and knowledge within social care. My previous post was at Harmeny Education Trust. This is a residential school working with children with complex social and emotional needs.
Before this I completed a six month placement as a student social worker within a female justice service with Edinburgh Council. This placement made me recognise that I wanted to continue my professional career within justice services, helping people achieve positive outcomes.
In 2016, I graduated from the University of West of Scotland with a degree in Contemporary Screen Acting. I was very passionate about the arts and enjoyed being creative but it turned into a hobby rather than a career. I recognised that I wanted to work with people and be a positive influence within their lives. I went on to study social work at Edinburgh University and graduated with a Masters in 2020.
