What am I responsible for?

I am responsible for providing executive support to the Senior Management Team. You may also have clicked through to my profile because I am a named contact on our careers page. You will find my contact details to the right of this page.


What brings me here?

I worked in recruitment for years and when I arrived back on UK soil after living in Australia where I worked as an EA, I knew this was the role I wanted to pursue. More important to me though was to work for an organisation that I believed in, felt passionate about and that looked after its employees. I found that with Barnwood!


What am I working on?

I am working on creating user guides for our internal HR system IRIS, supporting the Senior Management Team to deliver the new strategy and governance changes, producing a new and improved scheme of delegations and helping Barnwood to become strategically digital. I also continue to ensure we have an inclusive recruitment process.


What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?

Exercise! I like to mix it up between running and strength training and am obsessed with Pilates which I do daily, no excuses. I can’t sleep if I haven’t moved my body in the day. (She/her)
