I enjoyed a career with the International Thomson Organisation (ITO) spanning nearly 20 years. It included roles in sales and marketing, learning and development and strategic management. In 2003, I became a freelance Organisational Development consultant working with private, public and third sector organisations. I was delighted to be invited to join the WCADA Board of Trustees in 2013, and to be appointed Chair in 2017. As Trustees, we are incredibly proud of the essential work the WCADA staff team and volunteers are involved in every day, and the impact we have on service-users and their families. When I’m not working, I enjoy running, reading and listening to music.
