I am the senior Engagement Manager for York and Humberside.
I originate from the other side of the Pennines but fell in love with Yorkshire when I studied at university here. I jumped at the chance to come back in 2021.
I have two lovely rescue dogs; I enjoy walking them and the unconditional love they provide. I enjoy performance of all types and history is a subject I often delve into as a keen quizzer.
However, my real Achilles Heel is my love for Liverpool FC. I still have my season ticket and go to as many games as I can.
I was born with Albinism, Nystagmus, and photo sensitivity. I strongly believe that we need to keep the challenges that blind and partially sighted people face as an active, open, and ongoing conversation. It is only then we can enjoy the same level of opportunity in accessing the goods and services which are available to all members of our local communities.
We welcome everyone with a visual impairment to join us in the work we do. We want to raise awareness and influence change to help blind and partially sighted people to live the lives they want to lead.
