Chief Executive Officer
Born and raised in Sunderland, I attend Teesside University and graduated in 1991 with BSc (Hons) in Social Administration. My degree and required me to complete a work based placement and found myself at Sunderland Volunteer Bureau; this gave me my first experience of working in the voluntary sector. From that point on my career has always been in the voluntary sector focusing on social care. I have worked for nearly 17 years with Age UK Sunderland and 10 of those years I was in the senior management team. I move to Grace House in March 2017, I feel extremely proud to be the CEO of this Sunderland based charity.
I still live in Sunderland with my two children both teenagers and a Labradoodle called Sydney. I enjoy dog walking, trips to the cinema and eating out with friends.
