I was born with Spina Bifida, which left me doubly incontinent of the bladder and bowel. I live in Central London and really love the hustle and bustle of city life.

My education was somewhat affected my by hidden disability, so I left school at 16 with a few G.C.S.E.'s I dropped out of college and got my first job as pharmacy assistant in a Chemist. I then took on a variety of different jobs.

I currently work for a London Authority (9 years) and consider myself a Part Time Disc Jockey/Administrator in London's largest Cemetery. I’m a chapel attendant who hosts burials and cremations so I get to play the CD’s. But the other part of my job involves working outside in 190 acres of stunning grounds where the toilets are a 15 minute walk away. This even astounds me that I can do this! I have always worked full time and have very rarely had much time off sick.

In my spare time I speak about my hidden disability. This has given me more confidence and boosts my self-esteem. I’ll speak to anyone who will listen to me - continence nurses, clinicians, the public, companies that develop medical devises, continence product suppliers, Members of Parliament!

We need to break the “Taboo” and get the topic of incontinence out there.
