Theatre has always been a huge part of my life, and I never imagined myself pursuing a career in anything else. Graduating with a degree in Drama, I have gone on to work with young people as a director and practitioner, while also trying my hand at anything and everything else along the way. I love everything from creating large scale productions to playing Simon Says. I have always thought that getting to work with young people in a theatrical setting must be the best job in the world! As the Youth Theatre and Outreach Officer, I am dedicated to ensuring that every young person we work with gains invaluable skills and, most importantly, has a lot of fun!

I have taught and run a number of theatre schools for more than twenty-five years, joining Light UP to teach young people what they can achieve in the theatre. I do private tutoring and LAMDA teaching as well for the older kids looking to pursue a career onstage. Performance really is at the heart of my life. I have played many roles and directed many plays, was the Artistic Director of a theatre, and worked as a TV extra. But my passions have always been very eclectic. Before teaching drama, I was a qualified nurse. I love singing - I even had a band of my own. I love animals - I’ve owned enough to make a zoologist weep - from cats and dogs, to hamsters and rabbits, to horses and donkeys and goats, oh my! As you can probably tell, I don’t do anything by halves.
