I qualified as an HR generalist nearly 25 years ago after starting my career in management roles in manufacturing and music education. My HR career kicked off in television production, but I’ve spent the last 20 years as an HR Director leading teams in health and social care, primarily in medium-sized and large organisations supporting adults and young people with learning disabilities, mental ill-health and complex support needs.

My passion is for supporting our outstanding teams to love their work, fulfil their potential and deliver our purpose, doing amazing work to help people to stay well. As our organisation continues to grow well and further develop our services, my focus will be on making sure that the experience of our staff goes from strength to strength.
