I joined the Orchard Trust Finance Department in November 2015 and was promoted to the role of Finance Manager in Spring 2017 .  I'm AAT qualified after home studying alongside my previous role working for a multinational manufacturing company.
I chose to work for the Orchard Trust as I wanted to work for an organisation where what I did made a difference. Working for a charity that makes a difference to people's lives gives great job satisfaction.  I love having the opportunity to visit our homes, its great to see the bonds that are formed between our support workers and their service users.
Outside of work my time is mostly taken up with caring for my two young children, I like to get out and about with them over the weekends, we enjoy walks out in the Forest of Dean and visiting Gloucester Dock to look at the boats.  If I get any free time I enjoy baking and am attempting to learn how to create projects with my new sewing machine.
