I joined the Board in 2016 to support Para Dance UK with my substantial experience gained through 15 years working within the charity sector.

I started my career working with a grass roots charity in North East England to support learning disabled people to access and enjoy a range of leisure activities. Since moving back to South East England I’ve spent last 12 years working for a major UK charity, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), where I’ve honed my skills in strategic planning, monitoring and risk management. I’m also part of the management committee for the charity special interest group for the Institute of Risk Management.

Since joining the charity sector I wanted to dedicated my career to creating equal access to opportunities for disabled people (whether that be learning disabled or physically disabled) and brings a passion to grow disabled people’s access to and enjoyment of dancing.
