As well as working alongside people at a grassroots level, in community based projects, she has worked at a strategic level in a local authority and on programmes delivering national priorities around family carers.

Her motivation throughout her career has always been fuelled by strong personal values and a desire to do something about social injustice and inequality. This passion, combined with her commitment to coproduction, her skills in facilitation and her analytical thinking makes her an effective and resourceful team member.
