I started working for Stomping Grounds in September 2023. Prior to that I’d been a primary school teacher for 16 years, straight from university, so teaching was all I’d known. Taking the leap to leave the classroom was extremely daunting, but I am so glad that I did.

Now, I feel connected to nature in a way that I have always craved. Most people see the seasons change, but I get to actually experience it. Not only that, but I get to do it with likeminded people who are all working towards the same goal-supporting young people to find their true selves.

I can’t imagine anything better than working in a woodland, and to combine that with working alongside some incredible young people is a dream come true. I feel like I am making a difference again.

I feel like I’m on a new path, showing my own children what is important in life. Most of all, I feel connected-to people, to nature, and to myself.
