Kirsty has worked in a variety of roles in her 20 year career in Local Government supporting children, young adults and families, and she is currently enjoying maternity leave with her baby twins following successful IVF treatment. Kirsty is Youth Homelessness Coordinator for Powys and project manages a Welsh Government funded Housing First for Youth project for vulnerable young people with complex needs.
She has a holistic health and wellness partnership and also works alongside a Positive Psychologist in delivering wellbeing programmes to organisations, schools and universities. Kirsty first became aware of FTWW when she was searching for answers to her own ill-health and believing it may be due to Endometriosis and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder. With the support and guidance from the group she overcame battles with a challenging healthcare system to receive both diagnoses. She has also recently received a diagnosis for ADHD and is keen to support improvements in the recognition and support for people with neurodivergent conditions. She became a volunteer with FTWW, believing passionately in their work and mission.
Kirsty is delighted to become a member of the Board to help FTWW’s in furthering the realisation of health equity in Wales.
