During my recent studies I became increasingly interested in Learning & Development, leading me to base my dissertation in this area and move into this field.

The opportunity to assist in the career development of individuals, who in turn aid the growth and progress of young people across the London area, of which I have been very happy to call my home for the past 20 years.
