I have spent my career in the not-for-profit sector, committed to improving the health, education and welfare of some of the most under-represented and vulnerable in society.
The past fourteen years have been in broad-based senior management roles, with income generation at their heart. I spent more than a decade as the Director of Fundraising & Commercial Development at The National Autistic Society, where over the course of my career there I led functions including voluntary and commercial income generation, marketing, digital, data services, employment programmes, and the charity’s contact centre. I have also held roles at Diabetes UK, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, World Horse Welfare and Mencap.
I am a Trustee of the charity Cranstoun, which offers services relating to substance misuse, domestic abuse, and criminal justice.
My partner and I have three children and we only recently made the move out of London and into Hertfordshire.
