Sarah previously worked as a doctor and then with adults with learning difficulties. She has a husband and two young children and enjoys exploring on foot and bicycle. She believes ardently that we would all benefit from speaking about death and dying more openly so that we are better able to support ourselves and our loved ones in life and death.
Dave previously lived and worked in America, supporting underprivileged children from the Twin Cities in Minnesota to access outdoor youth programs. He then went on to join Sarah in working with both children and adults with learning difficulties. Dave has a golden Labrador, called Wilson (who is also part of the team), whom he and his wife explore the surrounding countryside with.
Jade has previously worked within administrative and finance positions and has similar responsibilities at Full Circle. She has a partner and one child and enjoys long dog walks and nights in. Jade believes that talking about dying and funerals doesn’t have to be morbid and sad and is keen to pass this message on.
Like the rest of the team, Ruth has also changed careers having previously been a Microbiologist before joining the Full Circle team. Ruth is particularly aware of the emotional effects of death and passionately believes that everyone’s funeral should be as individual as the person was in life. She has a husband, one child, two cats and a guinea pig and enjoys any time spent with friends and family who are spread far and wide around the country.
