I joined HSMC at the start of 2008 working as PA to Jon Glasby who was then the acting Director of HSMC. Shortly afterwards Jon and Helen Parker were appointed as Co-Directors of HSMC and I continued to work as PA to both. Helen left at the end of 2009 and Jon was then appointed as Director. I stayed until May 2010 then left to go back to my former career as a children's nanny, a role I am still engaged in.
I really enjoyed my time at HSMC. Everyone was friendly, helpful, very approachable and there was a real 'family' atmosphere in Park House. I think I had one of the best views out of my office window on to the back gardens which were always beautifully maintained and this image will always stay with me. I also joined the HSMC Reading Group of which I am still an honorary member and try to get to as many meetings as I can.
