I am a Carer for my wife, Janet, and outside of work I have a keen interest in current affairs and politics and enjoy nice holidays.

I have worked for CARES since 1993 and am married with a son and two daughters.
My favourite times are spent with my family and friends and I also enjoy foreign holidays, reading and walking our dog, a Cavapoo called Mitzy.
I joined CARES in 2005.
My passions in life are supporting good physical and mental wellbeing for myself and others, my wonderful family and my pampered pets who are 4 chickens called Babs, Vera, Dotti and Dol.
I love music, dancing, gardening and cooking and have a fetish for boots.
I began working for CARES in October 2005 and spent 8 years in the Information Team. I was also involved with the Carer Support Groups for over 2 years. In October 2013, I began my current role as a Carer Consultation Assistant.
In my spare time I enjoy watching TV, including documentaries and dramas. I love reading and walking, particularly in Kinver with my daughter and her dog. I am the very proud grandmother of 3 granddaughters and 3 grandsons with whom I enjoy spending time.
