Danielle Walker & Sarah Kersey
My area is Cherwell which covers Oxfordshire.
I am married and have two boys. I play hockey for my local ladies team, enjoy going to the gym and occasionally taking part in fun runs. Before becoming a Local Coordinator I was a host parent for 2 years, we loved our experience and remain friends with our student as they were a big part of our lives. My husband and I are both Social Workers.
My favourite meal is lasagne, homemade chips and coleslaw. My dream is to go Whale watching and travel the world. My boys are currently saving for a campervan.
