About me

I am a hardworking, outgoing, creative and trustworthy individual, I have developed many key life skills from varied jobs and study such as, professionalism, interpersonal skills, adhering to deadlines, and the importance of balance. I am looking for the next challenge in my career to really sink my teeth into, thrive at and build my future. I am currently developing my personal body art company Sweet Cheeks Face & Body Art and creating a video blog about mental health alongside my day job. I try to find the time to be creative and learn new skills, this year I have experimented with embroidery, glass painting and most recently sculpting with polymer clay. Working with Kingston Councilor Jon Tolley I organized the collection and donation of clothes, toiletries and supplies for Calaid to aid the refugees in Calais. I also have weekly singing lessons, am fascinated by the natural world/animal kingdom and enjoy the aesthetics of the 40’s/50’s.
