Julie is a qualified staff nurse and worked at Northern General in the spinal injuries unit for 14 years and then as a community nurse. Julie moved to Dubai with her husband's work and spent time there, working in English schools, as a teaching assistant and as a school nurse. When she returned to the UK in March, she had enjoyed her work with children so much she looked to do the same in Sheffield. As a result, she came to work for JPAC Ltd in the after school club. She has had a wide variety of experiences with children from different nationalities and cultures, due to her travels. She is a qualified Level 2 Teaching Assistant. Julie brings an extra dimention to this strong team.
