Christina - Mentor

About me

My background is as a Primary School teacher and I have recently trained as a paddle board instructor and do some work as a forest schools assistant.  I love the outdoors and feel there are great benefits, both physically and mentally, of spending time active and outdoors.  I have 2 young daughters  and 6 hens at home.

Why team JHF?

I am passionate about sharing skills and interests and supporting young people to find and develop their own.  I believe the tailored, one to one support that the JHF offers through it’s mentors can be very effective for the mentees and also tremendously rewarding for mentors.

Things I love

Trying new things, anything that gives me an adrenaline kick; BMX, surfing, skateboarding, aerial silks and hoop and partner acro. Seeing others get that buzz out of trying something new. I also enjoy baking, and mostly eating, cake.
