I graduated in 2001 with a BA Hons in Primary Education with a specialism in Global Citizenship. I followed on to be a Primary School teacher and then SENCo, in Oldham, Greater Manchester. After making the lifestyle switch to veganism in 2014, whilst weaning my daughter, I had my epiphany moment and decided to dedicate the rest of my life to spreading awareness. I loved being a teacher, and a SENCo even more, but felt that I had to leave the profession and become a vegan advocate.
In 2015 I became Company Director of Lolo’s Vegan Restaurant and Bar. I had thirteen vegan staff and a whole heap of happy customers delighted to see vegan choices in their rural town of Ramsbottom. This was my first opportunity to research, implement and maintain consistent vegan ethics from start to finish and within a business model.
Fast forward a couple of years and due to ill health, unfortunately, I had to sell the business on. The silver lining though was Primary Veducation!
After a long recovery I soon found my passion for teaching again and started to supply in and around my town.
