With Co-create I have helped people to work together online, to feel connected and to feel that they belong in an online collaborative space.
With an academic background in Literature and Language, I am passionate about communication. I have worked all over the world, training and empowering researchers and communities to communicate with confidence. I have over 20 years’ experience of working in stakeholder dialogue and engagement, creating safe spaces for diverse voices to share, delve and explore.
In my 20’s I lived and studied in Mexico, working with indigenous communities. My passion for community engagement and enabling people to be part of the decisions that affect them began here. Watching the principles of engagement become more embedded into our mainstream organisations is an exciting journey to be part of.
The thing that really matters to me is the transformative magic of participation and co production, the way it empowers people and gives them a voice. I love working with people and making a real difference. That’s what makes me get up in the morning.
