I was passionate about drama from a very young age. I had very inspirational teachers and later I chose Newcastle University because it had one of the biggest drama societies in the country. I joined Westbourne House in 2006 to launch the curriculum drama. I left five years later to set up a theatre at a new college in the Middle East before returning to continue developing the drama department. One of the most heart-warming elements of the job is seeing a child discover a talent. I love that we create so many opportunities for children to discover their capacity for creativity.
