I am Deputy Chief Executive and Education Manager at Sinfonia Viva and before that I worked for a creative arts charity based in London.  I have been designing and managing creative education projects for over 15 years and I’m particularly interested in creating opportunities to inspire young and older people alike by working closely and creatively alongside professional artists.

During my time at Viva the orchestra has won several awards including the prestigious RPS Music Award for Audiences and Engagement in 2018, the Best Family Event award at the Family Friendly Awards in 2016, a national Arts & Business award for a corporate training partnership with Rolls-Royce plc as well as being shortlisted for many other national awards.

In 2016 I became a governor at Tower View Primary School, taking the lead as link for the creative arts and outdoor learning.  In 2018 I became Vice Chair of Governors.

In 2016 I became a trustee of Tom Dale Company, a creative and innovative contemporary dance company which explores the ways in which dance, electronic music and digital art come together.  I became Chair of Tom Dale Company in 2018.

When I’m not working, I enjoy baking, playing the flute and having fun with my family.
