I am really looking forward to managing Yeovil and being apart of the Happy Days team and providing consistency for my team and families. I am passionate about providing a warm and safe environment and love watching children develop throughout their nursery years.

Outside of nursery I enjoy sending time with family and friends I also enjoy travelling and have a big passion about Disney!
