Olufunke is a Mum and a Carer.
She is passionate about helping people to find fulfillment in their individual life journeys. Olufunke speaks from the heart; she strongly believes in the difference the ‘God-factor’ makes in caring roles and uses this as a platform for her coaching practice, drawing inspiration from her personal faith as a Christian.
Olufunke has garnered diverse human resource experience, wearing many hats in specialist and generalist roles and practicing across the educational, banking, consulting and telecommunications sectors. She transitioned into the field of disabilities due to a personal life experience that continues to inspire her to make a difference. She empowers families of children and young people with disabilities with essential information and vital tools on coping with disabilities.
She recently played a lead role in the policy implementation project of the Children and Families Act 2014 that significantly improved support for children with Special Educational Needs in the UK. Olufunke volunteers as the pioneering Coordinator of UCB Prayerline, Orpington Centre; she is also a member of Bromley Parent Voice and the Secretary for the Board of Trustees.
She has lived a life of ‘above and beyond’ in the face of many difficult and challenging situations. Her enduring vision is to see parents/carers within this sphere empowered enough to push forward, achieving seemingly insurmountable dreams and feats individually and together as a group.
Olufunke has a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching (Merit Award) from the Coaching Academy, UK, MA International Social Policy from the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK; M.Sc. Geography (Area of Specialization: Population Geography and Resources Analysis) and B.Sc. (Hons) Geography from the University of Lagos, Nigeria.
