Chief Operating Officer
What am I responsible for?
I am responsible for ensuring that we have effective and efficient governance, financial and operational arrangements in place.
What brings me here?
I started working at Barnwood in 2012, prior to that I had worked in the charity sector in independent schools for 15 years. Working in the charity sector is something I feel very lucky to do and enjoy the challenge of ensuring charitable resources are maximised for their beneficiaries.
What am I working on?
I have recently taken on the oversight of Barnwood’s new funding programmes, and I am working with the Funding Team to ensure that we develop and implement core funding principles which will underpin all of Barnwood’s funding programmes. We will use the principles to develop specific funding policies and criteria for the different funding programmes.
What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?
I enjoy being active either by doing sport (swimming, power walking or yoga) or by something more relaxing like dressmaking or going for a long walk with family or friends. I also enjoy having an opportunity to just be quiet and on my own. (She/her)
