Work history

About me

I have extensive experience in managing all aspects of both small and large organisations. I have volunteered with various Not For Profits throughout most of my work-life and am currently a Trustee with Hestia.org the largest provider of support and accommodation to people in crisis in London.  

I have extensive management experience with particular strengths in strategy, sales and marketing and change management. Having spent 20 years in the IT industry, I have an interest in 'all things digital.'  I am an Angel Investor with a focus on healthcare and a particular interest in mental health, wellbeing and digital healthcare.

I am very pro-active, have a good analytical mind and am generally a good problem-solver and communicator. I have travelled extensively, love meeting new people and learning about new cultures and new technologies. I am very flexible and really want to 'give back' and feel like I am making a difference.

What am I looking for

I am very happy to help a charity in a Trustee capacity especially in an organisation where I can provide active support to the executive team. I  have a special interest in all aspects of mental health and wellbeing, having recently completed an M.Sc. in Psychology.
