Describe in 10 words or less what you do at Nurture?
I look after and support the Donors throughout their donation.
What does a typical day at Nurture look like for you?
I am the Donor co-ordinator for the UK. I communicate with all our active donors as well as check through new donor profiles and do donor interviews.
Each day brings new challenges but Kirsty, Lee, and myself are a fantastic team and we work really well together.
What has been the highlight of your Nurture career?
Being a part of the Nurture family.
What was your day job before Nurture?
I owned my own small business in Cape Town, we manufactured decorative curtain rods.
What does family mean to you?
Family means everything to me. My family is my ‘safe’ place. Someone once told me you never truly know what love is until you have a child – and they could not have been more right.
What does a typical day in your household look like?
Mornings are always busy and rushed. Once the morning rush is over, I sit down, and my work day begins.
What would you want every donor to know?
You are doing something so amazing, selfless, kind and caring.
If you could know that absolute truth about something what would it be?
Is there life after death?
What do you do when you’re not working at Nurture?
I spend every spare minute with my daughter and husband. We enjoy going on family days out, exploring and traveling to new places. We love going to the London parks in summer and being outdoors.
