What do you enjoy most and least about your work?
I enjoy making a difference to people’s lives, but dislike the conflict.

It’s amazing and rewarding. Everyday is different and we are allowed into the lives of people to help, support, and care for all – delivered with compassion.
There are many opportunities in the role and the job is diverse.
