Although I am a teacher by profession, I have been working in a Community and Voluntary Sector for the last 13 years. During that time, I worked for Community Alliance Broxbourne and East Herts in various capacities and across a number of projects in Hertfordshire. Until February 2022, I worked for Wormley and Turnford Big Local as the Community Development Manager. In March 2022, I started to work as the Engagement Manager for Community Alliance and my main role is to support Big Local projects across London. I am an activist and I am passionate about the community. I am interested in issues relating to civic engagement, diversity and inter-faith dialogue. I speak a few foreign languages (I am fluent in Polish, English, Croatian and Italian). I love sports, traveling, politics and reading.
