I joined StreetDoctors as CEO in April 2014. I have worked with charities, as a government advisor and in communities across the UK for over 20 years with a particular focus on youth and community conflict. As director of the Leap Academy of Youth and Conflict I led on their award-winning action research programmes addressing issues such as gangs and territorialism, knife and weapon use, identity and prejudice reduction.
I have been amazed at the outstanding commitment and engagement of our volunteers since joining StreetDoctors and am really looking forward to working with them to grow the organisation so we can make a positive impact on the lives of even more young people.
Once a keen rower, I have traded in my oars for the ukulele, just as challenging but less early mornings!
