Meet The Team
Born in Sheffield, I graduated in economics from London University and then spent the whole of my career in NHS management, the last seven years as a Health Authority Chief Executive. After taking early retirement from the NHS I have worked in the private health sector and also carried out consultancy work. I continue to mentor and coach newly appointed managers and believe that all organisations need to invest in their future by developing staff to their full potential. This is an approach that I know is followed at The Avalon Group and I am keen to be part of it. The services that Avalon provide are vital to the people who receive them, often at a vulnerable period in their lives.
I have a long-standing involvement with Citizens Advice in Harrogate and continue to work as an Advice Supervisor in the Harrogate bureau.
For leisure, I’m often found walking on the beaches and hills of Northumberland. I also collect early twentieth century British art pottery and have inexplicably followed the fortunes of Leicester City football club for over 50 years.
