Meet The Team
I have 20 years’ experience of working in senior charity roles. In my day job, I am the Executive Director of External Affairs for Addaction, a national drug, alcohol and mental health charity. I’m responsible for our profile and influence and ensuring we have a strong reputation and brand.
I’ve been involved in communications and marketing at a senior level for many years. Prior to joining Addaction, I worked for KCA as Director of Development and Marketing, which included responsibility for mergers and acquisitions. I began my career as a drug worker, having started out as a volunteer.
I bring a detailed knowledge of how charities run as well as knowledge of business development, media and marketing to bear for The Avalon Group. I love being involved in new things and am passionate about helping charities to grow and develop.
