Kristy started with Youth Moves in October 2020.
Her career in youth work started as a volunteer at Hareclive Youth Centre when aged 17. She enjoyed it so much that she went to college to get a youth work qualification. Working at Hartcliffe Club for Young People she remained there until leaving to have her own children. After that she started working at Bedminster Down school as part of the pastoral team supporting young people to overcome some of the daily challenges they faced in school. 
Kristy is really excited to be back doing a job that she loves and working with young people from her local community. She said: "There are so many amazing young people and it's great to be able to help and support them to overcome challenges and achieve their full potential."
Hobbies are important to her, and she lists her favourites as going for nice walks around Bristol, enjoying camping trips with family and socialising with friends.  
One interesting fact about her is that not many people ever get my name right, and call her Kirsty instead of Kristy!
