What do you do at RRLS?
I’m the outreach and communications coordinator. My main role is to connect with professionals like psychologists and therapists, introduce them to RRLS, and explain who we are and what we do.

What’s your favourite thing about working in outreach?
My favourite thing about working in outreach is when a professional is so excited to learn about RRLS because they have specific families that they know would benefit greatly by attending our space. It’s so great when we can offer a student the support they need to succeed who may have otherwise struggled because they weren’t aware of us.

What’s your favourite thing about working at RRLS?
I love the way that we are all such a tight-knit team. No matter who you run in to, you’ll be greeted warmly, with a smile. I feel very lucky to be working with such genuinely lovely individuals. 

What’s your favourite way to spend an afternoon?
On a productive day? I enjoy reading, seeing friends and doing a workout class. On a lazy day? You can find me hanging with my dogs.
