Breastfeeding Specalist

I do not wish to bore you with all my qualifications and study days, but if you are anything like me you like to do your research and know the background of the person you will be working with.

My background is Early Years, I have taught in Colleges and for The Open University. I have also freelanced for a number of early years training companies.

I would also like to share with you that I do have a learning bug and I am always adding to my skills and knowledge as life is one big learning journey. I am dyslexic and learn does not come easy but I have the bug! I am a life long learner I am that definition!
