Meet Jodie, brought up in Newport, East Yorkshire before moving to Hull with her partner Chris 7 years ago.
Jodie started her working life doing administration for an electrical contractors, which is where she met Chris. She tells me they met at the Christmas party and the rest is history or so they say!
Since Jodie’s lovely Grandma suffered a stroke and then she lost her Grandad to cancer all Jodie wanted to do was be a carer.
Jodie started in domicillary, then residential and more recently learning disabilities. Caring is the most rewarding job, and it has definitely shaped Jodie into the wonderful person she is today.
Jodie and Chris have a beautiful baby girl, Ava, she is nearly 20 months old they both couldn't have wished for a more perfect little addition to their family. Even Dylan the dog was welcoming of the screaming bundle of joy!
I met Jodie when she approached Mini First Aid to join our growing team. What strikes me about Jodie is her charming and very driven personality. Jodie is a very determined lady and she believe very passionately in her new venture to bring Paediatric first aid training to the parents and carers of Hull & East Riding.
Jodie has already become a local celebrity, with newspaper articles and several radio interviews under her belt already – the local interest in Jodie’s new business is certainly high!
Jodie’s friends and family we worried she was taking on to much at first but soon realised how important this role is for Jodie and the people that she teaches. Baby and child first aid is so important because simple knowledge could prevent unthinkable situations. Little lives can be saved and Jodie can help teach parents and carers how to do that. I think she is going to be brilliant!!
If you live in Hull & East riding and want to attend one of Jodie’s classes please book via the website.
If you think that you could be the next Jodie to join the Mini First Aid team, we are recruiting across the UK.
I just feel very lucky that another super Mummy is joining the Mini First Aid Team xx
