Chief Executive Director

I’m a qualified nurse for people with a learning disability. With over 30 years’ experience in the field, I have worked in a variety of settings both within the NHS and Independent Sector. I have worked as a Ward Manager (NHS), Registered Home Manager (challenging behaviour services), set up specialist hospital services.

As a Director and Partner of Accedo, I’m responsible for the growth and development of the business, but most importantly, to ensure we follow our philosophy and commitment to our service user.

The five most important things to know about me

  1. As a child my favourite pet was my goat Lucy
  2. I cycled around Iceland on a mountain bike
  3. I have known the Directors of Accedo for more than 20 years (yes that means some members were very young when we first met)
  4. I used to live by the sea in Cornwall and had a pet dog who used to love surfing
  5. I am vegetarian
