What do you love about working at IPA?
I value the same principles as IPA, and truly believe that everyone within the organisation aims to give the children better opportunities, placing the value on the importance of play.
What is your favourite childhood play memory?
When I was a child I lived on a farm, and I remember playing in the barns and on top of hay bales, I remember swinging on a tyre swing. The freedom of running with my friends around the farm, playing hide n seek without the grown-ups is my favourite childhood play memory.
