I worked in a variety of jobs before getting married. I had three children and when my youngest started school I decided I wanted to work with children. I studied City and Guilds 0-7 and having enjoyed this so much I then went on to study a diploma in Nursery Nursing at Belfast Metropolitan College. I then got a job in St Peter's Nursery School and have been here ever since.
