Carolyn Storer – Befriending Co-ordinator

Carolyn joined the teamCarolyn Website as a Befriending Co-ordinator in July 2017. She moved from Essex to Uttoxeter with her gorgeous cat, Bumble, in 2016 and decided that not only did she want a fresh start in a different part of the country, she also wanted a change in career. So, after many years as a Qualified Veterinary Nurse, she now works part-time at Careline and studies Forensic Psychology full-time with the Open University. Carolyn also volunteers for other charities in and around Uttoxeter and enjoys singing, reading (she always has her nose in a book!), and going to the movies. She’s very much enjoying her new home, her new town and as a keen hiker, she loves being so close to the countryside.
