Hiii, I’m Amy and I like bubbles, bouncy castles, food and football. I enjoy smashing golf balls, musicals and reading a good book. I don’t like cucumber but I eat it every day. I am chatty, enthusiastic and my mates describe me as ‘caring, kind and quirky’. I am the Digital lead so, am often the person behind the social media posts. I am also the Mental Health lead so you will often hear me talking about all things well-being. I don’t have any pets but I do have a unicorn called Éclair.

Hi, I’m Ashleigh and my role involves me supporting and coordinating any unpaid members of the team. This includes Peer Mentors, Volunteers and Student Placements. When I’m not working I love spending time with my family, my two amazing children like to keep me busy and on my toes. I also love being out in the fresh air, curry, the colour purple and all things magical! On the flip side, I’m not the biggest fan of mushrooms or the thought of being in open water.

Hiya! I’m Claire and I work closely with young people who struggle in mainstream school. I love makeup, spending time making my nails look glam, strawberry sugar laces and watching films. I always get excited for Halloween and Christmas; I go crazy with decorations all over my house! I am definitely a dog person; my Staffordshire Bullterrier is called Deeds and he is nearly 15. I can be quite shy in big groups of people, but I love to talk. I love listening to other people’s stories and experiences.

Hello! I’m Corinne and I’m an Administrator and Social Media Support. I’ll be one of the first people you speak to so will answer any questions that you may have about us and the support we offer. I’m lucky enough to have been a Wasps season ticket holder for a few years and I regularly attend international matches of my beloved Wales – Cardiff is my happy place. So, if you ever want to talk about Rugby, I’m your girl! I also love stripes, I am a coffee making queen and I speak a bit of Swedish!

Hi, I’m Craig, I am the Team Leader here at Positive Choices. I manage most of the team and am responsible for the safety of all service users. I am a dad to a two-year-old and love spending as much time with him as possible. I love hiking, trail running and scuba diving. I’m a big music fan; Arcade Fire are my favourite band and Lady Gaga is my guilty pleasure. And the number one thing on my bucket list is to do a historical clubbing tour of Berlin.

I’m Jess, I’ve worked for Positive Choices since November 2020. I am currently the Criminal Exploitation lead within the service and help to run the boxing club. Most of the young people I work with have experience of offending, have been exploited or are linked to gangs. I have a German shepherd called Dexter and two cats. When I’m not at work I’m either play-wrestling with my kids or binge-watching true crime on Netflix. My McDonald’s order is fries and mayo chicken with no mayo. I'm currently on maternity leave and will be back in September.

Hey! My name is Jess and I’ve been a Resilience Worker here at Positive Choices since May 2022. My specialist lead is to support young people around healthy relationships and sexual health. My happy place is at a gig, live music is my biggest love in life (alongside my children of course!). I am a huge Disney fan; my favourite film is Beauty and the Beast with Tarzan a close second. My favourite foods are Katsu curry, chocolate or anything Mexican and you’ll usually find me at home lost in a good crime/thriller or cheesy romance novel.

Hey hey, I’m Kelly and I’m the Data Administrator. I’m usually the first person you or your family/carer will speak to. I’ll help arrange your first appointment and answer any questions you might have about us. Over the last year, I’ve really gotten into running and will often be encouraging the rest of the team to join me for a jog. I have two children who keep me very busy. You will usually find us in a park looking for bears and splashing in puddles. My favourite thing to do is drink posh coffee and catch up with friends.

Hi, I’m Sharon the Service Manager for Positive Choices. I have worked within the young people’s service in Coventry since 2009. I wasn’t very academic at school, but I loved sport (and was pretty good at it!). I represented Coventry and Warwickshire in Hockey. I am married, have a cat called Bella and have a five-year-old son who keeps me very active. We love cycling, paddling and fishing in our local stream. He is also a great helper on the Positive Choices allotment; we find spending time there great for our wellbeing.

Hey, I’m Tulula and I specialise in Child Sexual Exploitation. I spend a lot of my time talking about healthy partner relationships and keeping safe online. I love keeping active; I enjoy playing tennis, badminton and doing yoga. I also enjoy relaxing with a good book, meditating and being in nature as often as possible. Ham and pineapple pizza is my fave. I can’t decide if I love cats or dogs more. And reality TV is my guilty pleasure.

I’m Tom, a Resilience Worker here at Positive Choices, or you may know me as Tom the Music Man.

Outside of work you will find me at a gig, playing my guitar, or kicking a ball for my 6 a side team. I’ve been with Positive Choices since January 2020. As you can see from my photo, I am also a keen artist and am happy to accept commissions for portraits.

Hi, I’m Vicky and I am a Children and Families worker. I support young people and their families who are impacted by a loved one’s substance use. I asked my family to describe me and here’s what they had to say... I am a mum who is awesome but embarrassing. A loud and lovely daughter. A wife who is caring and beautiful, and a bright and compassionate sister. I love food and one day I will visit a Japanese street food Market.
