Promoting the abilities and talents of neurodiverse adults, ensuring that society benefits from all our diverse talents is my life's work. Through my work as founder of Genius Within CIC and Psych consultant on Employable Me I have become acutely aware of how little research, knowledge and awareness there is of Tourette Syndrome.
Did you know it affects a similar number of people to Autism, but has only approx. 1% of same research as Autism?
I want to raise money for better research, in particular how to encourage and support adults to find their Genius Within and thrive in the workplace.
Tourette Syndrome can be life changing, and the people I have met have inspired me. Running 26.2 miles is nowhere near as hard as some of the challenges they face daily.
Their courage, passion and general gorgeousness will spur me on as I face the hard, muddy runs of the winter in preparation for this event. Thank you Ellie, Tom, Paul and Ryan in particular. Through working with you all on Employable Me you have touched my heart and I want to do you proud.
