Hello! My name is Emily., Recovery College Coordinator.

Hi I’m Emily, Recovery College Coordinator (Lived Experience). Although originally from
Kent I made Cumbria my home 23 years ago and it is now definitely the place I call home. I
have struggled with my mental health since I was a teenager but with bit of grit and
determination it hasn’t stopped me fulfilling my dreams although it has been a bit of an
obstacle at times. I qualified as a teacher in 2000, which was what I’d always wanted to do
and is what brought me to West Cumbria. Since leaving the classroom quite a few years ago
now I have never lost the passion in sharing knowledge and learning. Being part of the
Recovery College team is very exciting and I particularly enjoy seeing the big differences we
are making to the mental health of those we work with.
When I’m not at work I can usually be found doing something with my dogs, Harry and Hope.
I compete in agility and enjoy man trailing. I also enjoy being “crafty” and painting and
drawing and am always willing to try something new.
