For most of my career I worked within Facilities/Contract Management. Like many people from leaving school and college I never really knew which direction to take, however deep down I think I always knew I would thrive in a job where I felt I was making a difference to others.

‘Wriggler’ classes for children from 18months have been really popular in York.

Over the years I had an urge to pursue a different life for myself but could never quite pluck up the courage to leave a full-time job to fulfil this dream, nor could I work out what it was that I could do. When my husband and I started to plan for a family,

I saw it as an opportunity to fulfil that reoccurring niggle of yearning for a better work-life balance, being more in charge of my own destiny, choosing how I work and when, and fulfilling that job satisfaction I craved for which would allow me to make a difference to someone or something.

A Stretch-n-Grow Class
