I was Chair of Pegasus Theatre Trust (PTT) from 2002 and until 2006 was also Chair of the Pegasus Theatre Management Committee when it was dissolved and all duties handed over to the PTT.
After University in Southampton and a nursing training at St Thomas Hospital, London, I worked as a health visitor. I had several senior management posts in Oxfordshire and became the Children, Young People and Maternity lead for the Thames Valley Strategic Health Authority until it was dissolved in 2007.
I then worked as a consultant to various NHS and charitable organisations until 2009 when I was appointed Chief Executive of HENRY a national charity providing training to promote healthy lifestyles to prevent childhood obesity.
Since January 2011 I have been Managing Director of a small independent publishing company producing a high quality weekly story comic for children, The Phoenix.
