Employed by Livewell Southwest CIC, and currently seconded to the role of Alliance Manager, managing the Complex Needs Contract for Plymouth I have over 30 years’ experience of operational management within private, statutory and voluntary agency settings, with a person centric approach. Having previously been Head of Operations for Harbour Drug & Alcohol service, I was keen to maintain a close connection with the voluntary sector and was delighted to be appointed to the Board of Shekinah, an organisation I have known for some years, with a values base I could align with.

A single parent to a fabulous daughter, much of my time, when not working, is spent addressing teenage challenges, walking, reading and enjoying the company of great friends.
