About Me

Finally - the end of my uni studies draws to a close and I am soon to sign off as 'Jennie Whitley - Wife, mother of 2 girls, (responsible) dog owner (and dog lover), sister, daughter, friend - and, after 5 years of ups and downs - SOCIAL WORKER' A self confessed internet junkie, an online portfolio seemed a logical submission for my final assessment - my Social Work Portfolio.

For those who have stumbled this way, welcome, pull up a chair, enjoy a cuppa and read as much or as little as you want.
