Favourite part of my job

Working as a team and facing a wide variety of challenges.

Hobbies and interests

Being a mum and spending time with my children. I also enjoy running.


“I joined the service when I was 19 so I’ve spent all my adult life in the fire service. I have three children, but have returned to work full time as this is my other ‘family’. The fire service has changed over the years but wherever I’ve been, I’ve always been made to feel welcome, valued and part of the team. And despite being 5’4”, I’ve used my size to my advantage – receiving a commendation for saving a man’s leg and showing that crews are better made up of a variety of people!”
