What led you to a career in the childcare industry?

After a number of years an opportunity came up for me to immigrate from the UK to Australia to manage a centre in the community of Warwick and the rest is history!

What are your goals for the service over the next 12 months?
My goals over the next 12 months are to get to know my team and have a deep understanding of the local community that I work with. This will me make decisions for our service that suit the context and will help us work towards being an exceeding service.
