Christine – MusterPoint
Three years ago she came to BlueLightCamp for the first time, and was really impressed by the collaborative nature of it. She’s a special constable and passionate about policing. She decided to set up her own social media platform for the emergency services. She has a few clients now, but it’s been a hard two years. She’s had no life, but she’s found it amazing inspirational.
