My Career Story
"Choose a job you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life"
I am a qualified Career Guidance Counsellor and I have been working with many students as a Guidance Counsellor in CCS. Prior to becoming a teacher and then a Career Guidance Counsellor, I worked in the private sector as an entrepreneur and my experience in the business sector has enhanced and informed my approach when working with students and guiding them in the right direction for course and college choices.
My passion in what I do, as well as many years of life-long learning, allow me to bring a great deal of empathy and understanding, when working with students in developing a Career pathway. Listening, understanding and being passionate about your professional work whilst working with students brings a great deal of satisfaction when you see students developing an understanding of their course and career options.
