Director of HR and Operations, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, BMed Sp Sci Hons, HCPC, RCSLT
Born on the Fylde Coast, I studied at Sheffield University for 4 years before returning in 1996 to work for the NHS. Initially I worked with both adults and children in a variety of community clinics, children’s centres, schools and a hospital. Together with Joanne Burr, I founded Communicate in 2011.
I am married with 3 wonderful children, a dog and very supportive family. My other loves are Salsa dancing, yoga and friends.
I thoroughly enjoy being part of Communicate SLT CIC. Every day I get to work with a fabulous team who ultimately make a difference to children, families and the community which we serve. As an executive director I lead on the strategic planning and implementation as well as all things HR and operations.
