How did you end up here?

Having worked extensively in the not-for-profit sector for many years most recently as CEO of a children’s charity the next logical step was with the role with FIA – the role brings all my skills together.

What is the best thing about working in the third sector?

Genuine people and genuine causes

If you could be or do anything else, what would it be?

A professional student – I love learning new things!

What gets you up in the morning?

The wonder of what the day will bring – plus I am an avid runner so the desire to experience the best part of the day in the early morning makes it an early start each day.

‘I consider my greatest achievement to be…’

My son, Nathan who is just a delightful young man.

In life it’s important to…’

Make the most of every day!

If you could meet anyone from history, who would it be? (and why?)

Nancy Wake aka “The White Mouse” – one of the bravest women to fight in World War Two – during the war she worked as a highly trained spy assisting many to their freedom.

Always make the most of opportunities presented to you’
