This month sees us say a temporary goodbye to our School Engagement & Liaison Manager, Katherine Birch as she starts her maternity leave. Hopefully Katherine will return to us within the next 18 months and her energy and ‘I can’ attitude will certainly be missed at Girls Out Loud HQ. I know all our Big Sisters and team will join me in wishing her well and demand that she stays in touch! And with one daughter and another one on the way, how can she say no!
