I had the pleasure of joining the HLC in January 2018 as their Senior Community Development Manager, moving to the CEO role in January 2019. I have greater than 12 years’ experience in the community sector, with a strong track record of delivering social change and developing teams and organisations to create the greatest impact in their work.
As the HLC chief executive I am fully committed to the Bucks community. My number one priority is to tackle health and welfare inequalities in the deprived areas of Buckinghamshire, our county has the highest GDP per capital outside Inner London, the highest quality of life, the highest life expectancy and the best education results in the country. Unfortunately, our county also has areas which rank amongst the 30% most disadvantaged in England.
I joined the HLC in 2018 after previously working in senior Operations management and Project management roles in GE and Aon, with over 20 years’ experience in organisational development positions.
I am delighted to be part of the Healthy Living Centre team to bring services and support to local residents and beyond across Buckinghamshire. My role involves defining new projects and seeking complementary partnerships to further expand the services offered at the HLC.
