What am I responsible for?

My job is to award and evaluate the impact of funding to organisations and groups in Gloucestershire. Maintaining supportive and learning relationships to contribute to the trusts grant making processes, purpose and vision.



What brings me here?

I am particularly passionate about wanting to make a difference to the lives of people with mental health conditions and physical disabilities. This resonates with me as I have had family with mental health challenges and know how difficult it can be to access help when needed.

I have a background of working with the British Red Cross in Event First Aid and have also worked within the Veterinary sector as well as many other areas throughout my life.



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

My main passion is looking after animals, having 8 rescue animals currently. I have an interest in researching new methods of treatments for sick animals. I love travelling to different countries and immersing myself in new cultures and learning. Reading, walking, Eating out and plants! Can never have enough plants!
