What am I responsible for?

I am responsible for the administration of the different funding programmes that the Trust provides, whilst keeping within the Trust’s criteria in an efficient and effective way. I also contribute to the development of the funding programmes as they evolve.


What brings me here?

I’ve been at the Trust for coming up to 5 years and before working for the Trust. Before working here I taught for over 10 years, here in the UK, in Latin America and Europe. In Cheltenham, I helped coordinate a successful a Summer School for an average of 400 children each year, and I also coordinated an adult summer school later in the year managing both students, teachers and planning all their trips and excursions.


What am I working on?

I am currently working on the administration of the individual grants and I am the lead for the Grants for Your Home grants programme we offer. I am continually looking to improve the grant and to make it work for everyone.


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

In my spare time, I love being outdoors: hiking and running and if I’m not doing either of those things you might catch me at a festival playing the drums in a samba band. (She/her)
