What is your background?

I fell into housing, like a lot of us in the sector. I work at South Yorkshire Housing Association and I’ve held a range of roles in our care, health and wellbeing department: LiveWell. A big part of my career has been in our Tendering Team. I’ve spent a lot of time completing tender documents that commissioners issue.

What is your favourite thing about Co:Create?

How they bring people together in new and different ways to hear human stories, which helps create great solutions

What’s your favourite movie?

This varies depending what day it is! Probably Strictly Ballroom or Alien – I have quite diverse tastes…

What inspires you?

The opportunity to make something better – either by influencing others or getting stuck in to make something happen.

What's your perfect weekend?

I am a happy camper, so I love nothing more than getting out into the Peak District and pitching up for the weekend. Walking, reading and real ale – you just can’t beat it!
