With over 20 years’ experience in generalist human resources, I’ve worked in a variety of organisations across the public and private sector, as well as extensive consulting/contracting experience. I call it my “happy place” when I can partner with a senior leader or leadership team to understand their business and provide tailored HR solutions to meet their specific needs. I pride myself on my pragmatic style and problem solving – having often been referred to as the one who “thinks outside the square”. I love working alongside people leaders to guide them and assist them to engage with and motivate their teams, as well as helping them with every day people management issues.

Outside of work, I’m a mum of three busy boys (11, 12 and 14), so basically, I’m a taxi driver! I love cooking, keeping fit and active, and ensuring I keep in close touch with friends and family. We’ve also been enjoying exploring our own wonderful country much more than we have in the past, to satisfy our travel “bug”.
