Having experienced the pressure and rewards of naval life I feel immensely privileged and proud to be a Trustee of the Naval Families Federation.
My husband was a submariner and I remember very well how it felt to move with him to a new location with a new baby just as he went on deterrent patrol, far away from family and yet to make new friends.
I have worked in the public, private and 3rd sector and am currently the Director of People for an adult Hospice, a role I took on following a period of HR Consultancy. This role is varied with responsibility for HR, Volunteers, Payroll, Pensions, Health & Safety, Non-Clinical Education and Estates. I am also pleased to have gained an MSc in Organisational Psychology which supports me in my Trustee and Hospice role.
In my spare time I enjoy walking, cycling, sailing, reading, and spending time with the family.
