After graduating in Maths from Leeds University I trained as a Chartered Accountant. I worked as an Accountant in London for eleven years before becoming Head of Financial Reporting and Analysis for the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall Household, in Clarence House. I moved to Nightingale Hammerson in December 2021 as Head of Finance and became Director of Finance in February 2023. I have always wanted to work for a charity that made a fundamental difference to people’s lives. Here, more than in any other previous employment, I feel I can really help to change the Residents’ lives for the better.
