NHS Board Executive Director
PRECIOUS Outstanding Woman in the Public Sector Award 2017
Trained in systemic coaching practices
I started my career in healthcare in the UK as a PA in 2001, and navigated my way to a high profile board executive director role in 2016. Throughout my career, I’ve built dynamic, diverse teams, encouraged and supported people to be brave, to bring their authentic self to work, and to progress in their careers.
My superpower is my ability to encourage, influence and develop others to take action – I describe this as ‘making it happen with an energy that motivates and builds confidence.’
I won the PRECIOUS Outstanding Woman in the Public Sector award in 2017 and am a regular leadership and career progression speaker and panellist. I was also the lead COVID19 recovery director for my healthcare organisation during the first 12 months of the pandemic – the ultimate test of leading at an executive level during challenging times.
I made the decision to transition my career path and leave the NHS to fulfil my purpose and use my superpowers and systemic coaching training to help more leaders. Alongside coaching I also host a leadership podcast ‘Be Yourself, Back Yourself and Make it Happen’ to share practical insights and advice with leaders at all levels.
