Describe a typical day's work at the Foundation: 

Every day is different but can consist of taking phone calls at all hours of the day…and night,  working with participants daily through fitness sessions, training and job specific activities throughout their pre-employment pathway. Also, working with employers to create employment opportunities and the best part of the job is seeing someone start and enjoy their new position.

Favourite part of being a mentor: Again, seeing someone start and enjoy their new position, the impact that has on their lifestyle and hearing all the positive feedback from employers.

Personal inspiration:  Jesus and my Mum
