I am a married mother of five who lives in Weardale in County Durham. I have lived in the North East since 1993. I am a qualified Social Worker with 25 plus years of working within Social Care and Health. My current role is Director of Adults and Health in one of the North East Councils in the Tees Valley. My responsibilities cover Adult Social Care, Public Health and Environmental Health.
I am passionate about Health and Care and have admired the North East Ambulance Serice as an organisation, an employer and key partner across the system.
I have always been involved in voluntary work alongside my full-time employment and have served as a Governor on behalf of a Local Authority previously for another North East NHS organisation.
The Covic Pandemic has brought with it immense challenges but has also led to organisations and staff working in different ways. I am keen to be involved in key committees where any learning can be taken forward from the Covid experience.
I am passionate about staff development and support and feel that I could bring my background, knowledge, skills and expereince to good use as a Public Governor. I am looking forward to being involved and making a difference.
