I originally studied architecture and after working in a practice, became interested in regeneration and housing. My first job in housing was a development officer at St Vincent's Housing association and I loved every minute of it. Since then I have been fortunate to work for a number of forward thinking organisations, mainly in the North West. I have been a director for 20 years and been responsible for all aspects of, development, regeneration, community investment, asset management, investment and repairs delivery, but development is at my heart and I am really excited to be back in the North West delivering new homes and developing communities. I have also been a board member and chair of a housing association in the North West.
I have 2 grown up children, who have decided to return to the nest and a little dachshund called Boris (no political bias intended, as in my house he is definitely top dog!)
I am not a bricks and mortar person, I am a people person and that’s what really drives me to ensure we all work together to provide great homes and services for people who need a somewhere to build a life.
A great day at work for me is working with good people who are committed to making a difference to people's lives in the communities in which we work ..and drive our ambition to grow and provide much needed new homes.
