My background includes projects and commercial management, also working for  charities including the Duke of Edinburgh's award, UK hospices and even a wildlife Park. 

Having seen colleagues and family members challenged by stress and anxiety, I appreciate that we all need support at some time in our lives and that's why I am proud to be involved with this great team.
