Her Diploma in The Child and Education enabled her to work within the education system; she was part of the school’s pastoral team in her previous post and was an active member of the chaplaincy team heading up staff retreats and prayers.
Carol is regularly involved in children’s and youth work within her local church, and she is also involved in summer holiday clubs, youth clubs and residential projects within the community.
She is a trained counsellor, which allows her to support and encourage children, young people and adults emotionally. Carol loves Zumba, cooking and reading. She is resourceful and enjoy connecting people to achieve goals and looks forward to leading the team at MKBT. As Team Leader Carol will support the ongoing work of the team by co creating a wider range of ways in which children and young people can have the opportunity to explore their faith in a safe environment.
Carol has a strong Christian faith and recently became a minister within her local church. She values the bridges between MKBT and the local churches and wishes to see this connection grow stronger.
She joined the Bridgebuilder team in September 2018 and hopes to bring a sense of fun to the office and to her work with children and young people.
