Helen’s role is to be the voice of Genius Within on social media and sometimes in copy, for example, articles or website blogs. She also plans and designs content for our social media channels and helps to run the Celebrating Neurodiversity Awards every year. Helen absolutely loves connecting with our followers and collaborators on different social media platforms and being connected to the wider ND community. She also loves being creative with her team and developing new ideas.
Helen is proudly neurodivergent and also a parent to an ND child with high support needs. She had a difficult time staying in jobs when she was younger because she had not had the opportunity to understand her neurotype properly or learned to advocate for herself. Now Helen has a job that plays to her strengths and allows her the flexibility to have a work-life balance as she home-educates her daughter.
