In 2010 she moved to London and worked at a well-renowned school that provides support to SEN children, including autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. Whilst being the school’s Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo), she supported parents when applying and maintaining their children’s Education Health Care Plans (EHCP). Currently in Surrey, she works at an international school, where she supports neurodiverse students and works closely with class teachers on differentiation and support strategies.

She enjoys traveling, scuba diving, and baking with her two young children.
