BACKGROUND

Having spent over 15 years working in the print and packaging sector I joined Active Devon in 2002. In my current role I’m the strategic lead for the West and North areas. I also lead our Youth Engagement and Safeguarding work and I represent Active Devon as an independent trustee on the board of V.O.Y.C. Devon. Outside of work, I’m a safeguarding tutor and am currently chair of Netball South West and umpiring secretary for West Devon Netball, both of which are invaluable in helping me understand the needs of volunteers. To keep fit I'm a keen netball umpire – an activity that’s seen me travel over 25,000 miles in the last 20 years.

ABOUT

Responsible for:

Plymouth, West Devon, South Hams, North Devon & Torridge. Also safeguarding lead.


FUN FACTS

I like to think I’m hard working and dedicated. Recently I was working quietly but late in the office and on leaving found myself locked in by security who then went on their break. 25 minutes later and having lost my usual quirky sense of humour I managed to raise someone – who suffered the wrath of a netballer late for her match.
