In her early career she worked for Accenture and for a recruitment consultancy, before realising her ambition to join the third sector working for the national charity for the hospice movement, Help the Hospices.
She has a background in developing corporate fundraising partnerships with major brands, and developed and led numerous Charity of the Year campaigns before working with hospices across the UK to support their own income generating activities.
