I have been working at Viva since May 2013, which I absolutely love. Before Sinfonia Viva I enjoyed a wonderfully varied career in the arts, I have been Audience Development Officer and then Relationship Manager for Engagement and Participation at Arts Council England for 10 years - working across all art forms, Arts Marketing Manager at Nottinghamshire County Council, Marketing Manager at an off-west End theatre, a west country arts centre, a comedy festival and comedy clubs, events and promotion manager for outdoor festivals and technical management on a range of theatre productions.

Viva means so much to me and we attend the wonderful concerts as a family. Viva’s education and the community projects are leading in their field of creative music delivery and I have the privilege of talking about all our work to Trust, Foundations, donors and friends of the orchestra and raising money to support all of the wonderful work Viva does.
