My one aim in life has always been to inspire and support others. This started from a super young age helping children at clubs and then later as a teacher. I was determined to ensure every child in my class felt loved and whole when they were under my care. The opposite to how I felt growing up when I dealt with a lot of injustice.
I qualified with a 2:1, BEd (Hons) in Teaching in 2010 from Gloucestershire University and then spent the next 7 years in schools ranging from schools based in Croydon, New Addington to a private school in West Sussex. From full time to supply to part time- gaining as much of a picture as possible of schools.
A few years into teaching I ended up focusing on developing children's confidence and well-being with a special interest in how schools approached RSE. After attending a course on RSE, I realised how much support is needed in order for young people to access quality RSE teaching.
In 2015 we received a diagnosis which changed the way I view how women are approached when it comes to knowing themselves, their bodies and their menstrual health. After 4 years in the 'fertility world', I am finally able to breathe and follow my heart with supporting others learning more about themselves. I believe that I am here to inspire others to take back control of their bodies.
Between 2015 and now, I have spent many hours providing support for people on social media, discussing all things fertility, body confidence, breast feeding confidence to period positivity. From starting a kickstarter campaign hashtag #idropthecover to sharing my story on blogs and in print.
I have taken courses looking into how we can use the moon and the seasons to support our well-being. I regularly share how others can support themselves with careful planning and self-love. I look at how the modern world is impacting our fertility and how we can support, nourish and respect our bodies.
In 2019 I started working for the organic tampon company, OHNE as their customer support lead. I support others daily with period related questions.
I am a qualified NFP teacher having gained my Certificate of competence to teach natural family planning (special circumstance training in progress) and a crystal healer and crystal sound healer in training.
During my self-love hours I knit, listen to feminist inspired books (of course) and spend hours on our allotment.
