Head of People and Development
I come from a background in Financial Services as an HR Manager, but also always supported local charities, heading up the organisation’s community team as a volunteer. We were responsible for raising funds and arranging events in support of local charities, including FNHC. I also have a personal connection with the Hospice.
I feel proud to work for FNHC and to see firsthand the difference that our work makes to the lives of our patients and their families, at what is often a very scary and upsetting time.
When I speak to people who have received our support they are always so very appreciative.
I am also constantly in awe of the dedication and commitment of the Charity’s volunteers.
Head of Fundraising
I joined FNHC as Head of Fundraising in June 2017. Previously I worked at another large hospice charity as Head of Fundraising for Buckinghamshire where I was in charge of community, events and corporate fundraising. I have also worked extensively with Trusts and Foundations. I was awarded the Institute of Fundraising Diploma in 2015.
Before this I held a number of senior roles in the Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport where I worked on high profile issues such as free entry to national museums and increasing participation in youth sport. I spent the early part of her career working at the Imperial War Museum.
I am passionate about helping Florence Nightingale Hospice to acquire the funds it needs to care for an increasing number of people. I and my team are preparing to increase income over the next few years to help fund more Hospice services.
