Executive Director Operations
Professional Background & Relevant Experience
I have worked in health and social care for over 25 years, including 10 in the NHS, initially qualifying as a General Nurse and then specialising in neurosciences. I became interested in addiction having worked in acute care and witnessing first hand its devastating effects on individuals and their families.
How I Came to Work at Humankind
Having worked with individuals over several years following traumatic and acquired brain injuries resulting from their addiction I wanted to be part of an organisation that supported people into recovery prior to injury. Since starting in Humankind my remit has expanded into working with other individuals with complex needs and wider social and health issues.
What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind
I love working for an organisation that is passionate about working with people and values them and their individualism. On a daily basis I see service users who have been entrenched in addiction, homelessness and poor mental health, who find their value and purpose and then thrive. I am proud to be part of that.
