Becca Afrin – Office Administrator
Tell us about the journey that has led you to working for Healing for the Heart
I started my career working in the bridal industry, then after having my boys, I decided to have some time off from work. Now that they are a bit older, I wanted to go back to work and when the position at Healing for the Heart came up (perfectly timed) I knew it would be a great fit for me.
What is your specific role and who do you work with?
I work as part of the admin team in the office where I speak with onboarding clients and arrange appointments throughout the week. I also run the craft group on a Monday morning which is open to anyone to come along and enjoy.
What is your favourite film or book and why?
My favourite book series is “Mark of the Lion” by Francine Rivers. These three books are so beautifully written that I was captivated and I couldn’t put them down.
What is your favourite meal and why?
I am a big foodie but I do love Italian food; pasta dishes, pizzas, steaks!
Do you have a favourite memory from your time working at Healing for the Heart?
It is such a blessing to work with an amazing organization. I have had the privilege to speak with clients and hear their stories, how they have come from dark places and after journeying with Healing for the Heart they have found peace.
What is the biggest societal issue that you would like to see changed/improved? Or an issue you see many of our service users struggling with?
I feel mental health is such a big struggle in Scotland at the moment, that so many people turn to substance use as they can’t find the help they need. This is why I love working for Healing for the Heart! Working with others that see a need and want to help others with their mental health and ultimately improve lives!
Thank you for sharing Becca!
