Who am I?

#Care experienced

I am a care-experienced, keynote speaker who has a extraordinary, compelling and inspiring life story. I utilise a unique approach to storytelling, in which I captivate, inform and educate my audience by providing an account of my life, which comes from the heart, without shying away from the painful and disturbing aspects of my past.

My care journey involved my mother’s prison sentence, multiple placements & all the challenges that are are commonplace in adults who experience trauma & adverse childhood experiences. My post-care journey has it’s emphasis on survival and resilience, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and well-being. In a nutshell, the healing & work that overcoming adversity involves.

I will challenge you to overcome your own adversities and inspire you to work with others to do the same. Whether you are a student, embarking on lifelong learning, or a professional in the field, we can create an event that will have your audiences answering your call to action.
