HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE INDUSTRY THAT YOU ARE IN NOW?
Having had the opportunity of receiving coaching and seeing the impact it made for me on both a personal and professional level, I decided to train as an Executive Coach and I became a member of a public services coaching network in South Wales.
This gave me the ability to coach individuals from a variety of public services, which gave me the confidence to coach in other sectors.
With 20 years’ experience in the public sector, a considerable number of which at senior executive level, I love getting the best out of others and ensuring the delivery of organisational priorities. Coaching and mentoring have been instrumental to my personal and professional development and I am keen to offer others such opportunities.
WHAT DRIVES YOU?
I am committed to my professional development and am determined to deliver to the best of my ability. I have been fortunate to have received support and professional guidance during my career which has been key to my success. I now want to offer others the support which I have benefitted from and encourage others to maximise their potential.

NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR (NED) ROLES

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
My family are everything to me. All spare time is spent with my husband and 3 children. We’ve spent the last three years renovating our home and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! As a family we enjoy walking and as little legs grow, we are able to venture further on our explorations of the Carmarthenshire countryside.
FAVOURITE BOOK & WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?
I would highly recommend How to be a Productivity Ninja by Graham Allcott which has completely transformed the way I work and has left me feeling in complete control of my inbox and workload. I have also recently read and thoroughly enjoyed The Woman in the Window by A.J Finn which was a great page turner and complete escapism but with some thought-provoking twists and turns.
FAVOURITE FOOD & WHY ?
Current favourite is avocado and poached egg on toast. I hadn’t tried either until about 18 months ago, when I went on a cheeky weekend away with the girls to celebrate our 40ths. I was introduced to this in a café in Covent Garden, where we had a lovely brunch before exploring the city.
