To understand better how we can help you perhaps we should start by telling you a bit about us first.
Keri is one of the founding members of Curve Foundation and has been a part of the team for the past 4 years, something she is very proud of. She has worked in either finance or construction for most of her career until she decided to venture out on her own and set up her own events company. However, she will tell you her greatest achievement is being the proud mother of two daughters Chase and Reyna and her husband, Trevor, helping them achieve their goals as a vet and musician. Keri is a confessed Book Worm and loves nothing more than snuggling up with one of her 4 cats and a good book. She also enjoys cooking and trying to make the Lyra aerial hoop look graceful.
Taylor has worked in the Construction industry for over 20 years. Initially training in architecture, Taylor has worked at both leading London architectural practices and main contracting businesses at the director level. Taylor now has his own successful business providing outsourced design and document management services to SME’s in the construction sector. Taylor loves to travel and visit places of historical importance and architectural merit with his Artist partner Angelique, armed with cameras and sketchbooks. They also scuba dive and looking to find new underwater adventures. Personal experience of childhood bullying and its damaging effects on mental health are among the many reasons Taylor joined Curve back in early 2020. He will willingly share insights into his own journey and fully commit to banishing the stigma surrounding mental health issues. If Taylor is not spending time walking or mountain biking along the stunning estuary paths with his German Pointer, he will be out enjoying his other lifelong passion, motorbikes.

Hi, I’m Emily, and I love being part of the Curve Foundation. My role within the charity is to work closely with the families, manage the PR side of things and spread the word about what the charity does. Raising awareness of mental health and working with young people is something I am incredibly passionate about and is very close to my heart.
Alongside my work with the charity, I am also a professional actress and presenter and have worked in this industry for the past 20 years.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my little girl Lily. We love doing arts and crafts and going for long walks with our dog Harry.
I enjoy reading, sewing and catching up with friends and family.
My name is Yasmin and I have worked for the charity since February 2020. I enjoy being creative on our Social media channels, so check them out, plus getting involved with the finances and spreadsheets, I do love a spreadsheet!!
I also love the outdoors and an interesting fact about me is that I could fly before I could drive!
I am Rebecca, the youngest member of the Curve team. I assist with the creation of content for our promotion and marketing collateral, as well as maintain our website. Becoming a member of the charity was important to me, as struggling with mental health issues myself, I hope to help & support others with their mental health journey. I love playing football outside of work and currently play for a Women’s team. I enjoy spending time with friends, which makes me happy, even if it’s just going for a drive or walk in the evenings.
