I have been with Boomerang since our inception nearly 7 years ago.

7 years ago I was homeless myself, living in a hostel, with no real prospects and a negative outlook on life.

I didn't know what I wanted to do, but I was sure that I didn't want to go down the stereotypical homeless route of drink and drugs so I was searching for something, which I am happy to say, I found.... My purpose!

After volunteering for a few years, I was offered the position of Operations Manager when it became available.

I now oversee the day-to-day running of Boomerang, its staff, volunteers and its many projects.

I am constantly trying to develop myself personally and professionally and I have just enrolled in a Leadership and Management Level 4 course, that will take around 2 years to complete, which is the equivalent to a degree.

The ambition doesn't stop there, I wish to be a driving force in the advancement of our charitable objectives in these ever changing times.

I owe a debt of gratitude to Boomerang for the opportunities its given me, and I wish to repay this debt 10 fold in commitment, ambition and time
