I am a qualified social worker and have worked in social care for over 15 years. I also have
a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice BSc in 2008. I have spent thousands of hours undertaking
direct work with children and families. My passion and enthusiasm started from my personal childhood
experience of being looked after by the local authority. This gives me a unique experience
and insight into families and children who are in contact with local authorities.
Since the start of my Social Work career I have worked mainly within children and families. I progressed into senior roles within various teams, including assistant team manager and higher-grade practitioner. My areas of specialism are child protection, youth offending, restorative practice, systematic practice, parents with learning difficulties and children with disabilities. I have specialist training to complete PAMS, Parent Assess and AIM 2 assessments.
I have worked in various roles alongside Jeremiah for over 7 years, we have a collaboration of a pool of senior social workers, which includes service managers and team managers who will also be undertaking assessments for our service.
I have been working in front line social work for over 6 years. I have worked as a

undertaking assessment at a high pace to a high standard. Prior to working in social work,
I served as an army medic and have an additional degree in ethnographic studies (observations).
Like Kerry I also have experience of being in foster care for most of my adolescence. Offering me a
