I am passionate about volunteering and providing opportunities for others to give back to their community. SteetDoctors volunteers provide peer to peer teaching of life saving first aid for young people, where the next generation of healthcare professionals can inspire and encourage young people while also developing their own skills. The approach that involves young participants and volunteers learning from each other is what first attracted me to StreetDoctors. 

Having previously worked with young people in care I am a strong advocate for social justice; empowering young people to make decisions about their future and limitless potential. 

I have managed volunteers in various capacities over the last eight years, from local project level to national oversight. A common trait I have seen in all volunteers is their dedication, enthusiasm and empathy for others. StreetDoctors volunteers have these qualities and many more in abundance. I am privileged to work with them all.
