Engagement Worker

I was born in South Wales in one of those unpronounceable named towns. After leaving school I worked in the local hospital for a couple of years before joining the Prince’s Trust and went to the USA for 3 months to work in a summer camp for people with physical and mental disabilities.

On returning home I joined the RAF for 9 years and my last post was RAF St Mawgan where I met my partner and had 2 children. Before my retirement due to injury I was an avid rugby player playing in the most difficult position on the field as a tight head prop. After leaving the RAF I spent 17 years working in the IT industry.

I then decided to have a complete career change and am studying for a degree in Social Science with the goal of studying for my masters in Social Work. I joined White Gold with the objective of helping young people achieve the highest potential that they can achieve and to support them in achieving their goals.

With White Gold and my studying I find that I have very little spare time but when I do I love cooking and spending time with my family. I have also decided to restart my Aikido training as a means to keeping fit as well as circuit training.
