About me

Excellent communicator with over 7 years of experience in cross-sector engagement, programme delivery, and business development. Driven by innovation through collaboration, I am eager to help third sector organisations grow and develop through the adoption of effective digital strategies. Previously, I spent 3 years volunteering my time at the local Sea Cadets as a civilian instructor. Working with kids to develop their confidence on and off the water. 

What am I looking for

I've always been passionate about helping the younger generation improve their confidence and future opportunities. More specifically, supporting individuals with mental health issues. I'd like to help organisations develop their strategies, innovate and grow by leveraging my network and expertise within the digital sector and beyond.
