Mandy wanted to be a nurse in intensive care, and very quickly realised she was interested in the people more than the machines. She found her home in palliative care where her skills of listening, pain management and sense of humour shine. She loves singing, and her ability to draw the patients out through music is one of the inspirations for this film. As well raising a family and working full time, she is part of a local choir that just played their debut at T in the Park to great acclaim.
Here's a clip with Mandy from Seven Songs for a Long Life:
