Meet The Team
I have over 20 years experience of working in leadership roles, mainly in healthcare but also in social care, higher education and the private sector. My focus was on building partnerships, redesigning services and working with multi disciplinary teams in and across organisations to improve overall efficiency and outcomes for patients, clients and the public.
My last position before taking retirement was the Head of Development and Commissioning for Specialist Services at NHS Leeds.
My particular interest, since then, has been to work with charities at Board level which provide services and support to vulnerable groups. That was why I was particularly drawn to The Avalon Group, as I am committed to the improvement of the lives of vulnerable groups and their inclusion into communities.
My interests include travelling and exploring new destinations with my husband Roger, walking in the countryside, the theatre and fashion.
I have been an active member of Soroptimist International since 2005, which is an organisation for women that works together at local, national and international level to educate, empower and enable opportunities for women and girls, including better access to education and leadership.
