I am 41 years old. I am married to Damion and I have four lovely children.

I worked at Rochdale MBC for fifteen years where I completed my accountancy qualifications and was a Contracts and Commissioning Manager up to 2013.  I took redundancy and had my little girl.

I then started helping a friend with a business she had set up to support families who were receiving direct payments and individual budgets.  Kaleidoscope is now coming up to eight years old and I love it!  We have a growing staff team and support families and individuals in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Manchester with their budgets.  We also support families and individuals with health budgets.

I joined the POINT Board of Trustees early in 2016 and accepted the role of treasurer.  Hopefully my experience of both accounting and personal budgets will mean I can give some support and advice as part of the POINT team.
