I joined Carr Gomm in November 2021 as an operations manager with responsibility of looking after Business Development which includes Tender Bids, Fundraising, Marketing and Communications. The person centred approach and values which are at the heart of Carr Gomm drew me to this organisation as align with my working ethos.

For the last 10 years I have worked at senior level within Third Sector organisations, after being a midwife and changing career direction. I am passionate about independent advocacy ensuring that rights are upheld and that peoples’ views, wishes and needs are heard, respected and acted upon.

Outside of work I spend my time with my children, family and friends who are widespread and getting together socially is always fun. I’m also an avid reader with some of my favourite books being ‘The Executioner’s Song’ by Norman Mailer, ‘Hiroshima Joe’ by Martin Booth and Earth’s Children series, ‘Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean M. Auel.
