60 Seconds with Caroline

Thumbnail
Posted on 01/05/19

Caroline manages our front office and is the first person that clients will come into contact with either by phone or by arriving at the front door.


1). What does Silkworth mean to you?

Silkworth  is a place of Hope and Healing.  It is where people matter and it has a very special place in my heart as it helped me rebuild my life a few years ago. Caroline manages our front office and is the first person that clients will come into contact with either by phone or by arriving at the front door.


 2). You’re the Secretary at Silkworth, can you tell us a bit more about that role please?

As Secretary/receptionist I am the first contact for individuals and their family members affected by drug and alcohol addiction, whether by phone or arrival at the door.  So my personal experience gives me the empathy and compassion needed.  My day varies with administrative duties for our CEO as well,  providing me with an interesting and rewarding job.  


 3). What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I enjoy meeting up with friends, walking and exploring Jersey, if it’s good weather I’ll be on the beach.


 4). What was the last gift you gave someone?

The last gift I gave someone was an Orchid, I think they are exquisitely delicate works of art.

 

5). If you weren’t working at Silkworth what would you be doing?

If I wasn’t working at Silkworth I would be renovating a property, ideally with a garden, where I can indulge my creative side.
