I was privileged to be appointed to run Chrysalis in Oct 2017 and am proud to have led the charity through its own transition to a nationally recognised leader in the support of trans people, their families and friends. I am passionate about equality, empowerment and the right of every individual to be their authentic self.
Originally trained as a Control Systems Engineer I started off life in electronics manufacturing, then spent time managing student accommodation while I studied for my second degree in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. These two seemingly diametrically opposed professions come together within me to create a leader who is innovative, intuitive and informed. I believe strongly in combining the qualitative experiences of everyone who is part of Chrysalis with hard data to deliver the best possible service we can.
