What does your average day look like?
I have the opportunity to share the ups and the downs, the demands and pressures, those special, positive experiences with an amazing motivated team who go above and beyond every day continually giving to meet the needs of others. Throughout my time at LCH I have been honoured to work alongside some of the greatest people I shall ever wish to meet. People who have motivated me, inspired me, taught me to look inwards at myself for strength, and people who I can genuinely call friends. I challenge myself daily to make my colleagues feel valued and when I do succeed in creating some positivity and optimism, even during the busiest or darkest of days I feel so incredibly rewarded that I have made someone feel amazing about what they do each day, as others have done for me in the past.

What’s the best thing about your role?

What do you find challenging?
Every day can bring its own challenges, not knowing can be the greatest! Wondering in a situation: Can I solve this? How can I make this better? Or simply What do I do? When the overwhelming flow of pressure creeps through the door it can feel like the greatest challenge one could face. I doubt I am the only person who has experienced the sensation of drowning with hope to just keep one’s chin up, to just get through? Then I look at others, the ones for who we care: I look at families destroyed by disease and poor health, the unfair random selection of loved ones being taken away too soon and it is then do I realise it is not I suffering that day, I was instead part of an incredible team of gifted and talented people who endeavoured to meet the needs and wishes of others, to support them through what can be the most challenging time of their lives.
