I work with teams to solve difficult problems, think about their work in new ways, and overcome hurdles. I’m particularly good at helping to distil complex issues into manageable ones, working with diverse stakeholders, and finding common ground in order to move work forward.
I have a background in health service management and leadership, including a MBA in Healthcare Management, and ten years’ experience as a senior manager and leader in the charity sector. I have a keen interest in the intersection between health and its wider determinants, particularly in terms of social justice, equality, and human rights. I’ve worked hand in hand with policy-makers throughout my career, and have specific expertise around the context and devolved policy-making in Wales.
