My career started in the travel industry and over a period of 30 years I worked for private and corporate organisations ending my travel career with a large listed business. I was responsible for product and commercial in the scheduled business operation and also spent a number of years managing the administration and sales functions for these businesses which included their marketing, communications and PR.
I originally started at Derian House as a Trustee in 2014. Through family illness we were the recipients of the amazing support hospices provide, I wanted to look at ways of getting involved. I was aware of Derian House and the brilliant work they do for children, young people and their families and as a trustee I was delighted to be able to contribute to its future success.
I was delighted to join Derian House in 2018 as Interim COO and ultimately be appointed as substantive CEO in early 2019. I am committed to making a difference at the hospice and ensuring it continues to provide the very best care and facilities now and well in to the future. I take great pride in walking around Derian and seeing the amazing work the team do every single hour of the day.
