At the heart of my work is understanding what local government, health organisations,  and communities can do to maximise wellbeing and effectively translate this into practice. I am an experienced policy professional and have led service improvement activity across local government; the voluntary and community sector; housing associations; and secondary care.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management, have a Masters in Public Health, and an MBA from Durham University.
