I am a positive person always looking to bring out the fun and sunshine in others. I am also organised, responsible and sensible.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you?

Ultimately, I like the idea of being able to help somebody and bring some light to their life and whatever situation they may be in. Whether they have been born with a disability or affected by an accident, I think there should be no restriction to what people want to do and I feel I would like to help others with this.
