Annamarie has worked in the field of adoption for over 30 years primarily as a social worker and then as a Manager within a statutory adoption service.  She became an independent trainer for the social care sector in 2015 and joined the staff team in Adoption UK in 2017 as the Service Manager for Wales.

Annamarie misses the time when her three daughters were young, and is hoping for grandchildren! In the meantime she enjoys long walks, meet ups with friends, the usual cooking and gardening, and of course a good book!
