    I started my career in the Military at age 17, in the Royal signals and have been working in Communications ever since, (31 yrs) I am a Business Development Manager and work in partnership with companies across the UK and Ireland supporting them with their business technology. I am also a qualified life coach and a reiki practitioner. I love working with people and helping them see what they have within. I am a parent to 2 adult daughters who are at the heart of everything I do. In my spare time I am a member of a Musical Theatre group.I have done several charity events over the years, Sleep in the Park, Kilt Walk, Womens 5k to name a few, I am really inspired to help others as much as I can



    I am honoured to be part of the PNS board and I am looking forward to working with the team and the other board members to help grow the charity, the funding and anything else that is required. This is a really important charity to support parents and therefore the future of our communities.

    Service Manager, Housing First, The Salvation Army


    I specialise in the design, implementation, and development of large services for people who are experiencing homelessness. Ensuring a high standard of service provision which supports them to achieve positive outcomes and ultimately to reach their own potential. I have influenced significant increases in contract value and improved stakeholder engagement by the development of progressive feedback systems.


    I am an adaptive and passionate leader, who influences over cross-sector partnerships which has led to the development of collaborative working connections. I create opportunities for my team to develop beyond their role which creates effective succession opportunities.


    My drive and ambition have given rise to being appointed as a non-executive director for 2 charities.


    However, my greatest achievement is my beautiful family.

    “I joined the PNS Board in the Autumn of 2022 in what is my first voluntary trustee position. My background is in HR and I am currently Managing Director of an outsourced consultancy who provide HR support and services to small and medium sized businesses across all industries and sectors. I have worked with lots of voluntary Boards to help resolve HR issues within third sector organisations and I am very much looking forward to working with the PNS Board and staff to help shape the strategy and move the organisation towards its objectives.


    Away from work, I am a relatively new father which keeps me busy and I’m looking forward to learning more about parenthood from my involvement with this wonderful organisation.”
