I started working for Skybound in August 2020 and gained the RBT qualification in March 2021. I was new to the world of ABA. I’ve learnt so much and look forward to learning more as my experience grows. Inspired by the incredible knowledge of those I work with, I recently started an MA in SEN/ALN which I will complete in 2024. Most of all, as an RBT, I feel privileged to be working with amazing children and their families.
Before having children, I trained as a Careers Adviser and worked in Comprehensive Schools in Rhondda Cynon Taff and Caerphilly. I’m now a mum to three children. My middle child is neurodiverse and I learn from her every day. When my children were younger, I started volunteering in their school, listening to children read. I also began helping at the local Rainbows unit and then became Snowy Owl in Brownies. Although my daughters have now grown too old for Brownies, I can still be found there each week! My volunteering experience has given me fantastic opportunities to learn about working with primary age children.
In my spare time I like to be outdoors, either running or walking the dog whilst listening to my audiobook.
