I went to St. Genevieve's High School and studied Health and Social Care, after this I studied a Diploma in early childhood at Belfast Met. The opportunity arose for me to take on an assistant role in St Michael’s Nursery school when I completed my course. I took this role and I have never looked back. This is my 17th year working at St Michael’s, I am very passionate about my job and love going to work each day. The staff, children and whole school community are second to none!! Here’s to many more years in St Michael’s where I can continue to help the children in my care reach their full potential.
