Award winning changemaker, leadership coach and trainer

Over the past three decades working across various sectors, I discovered my calling, my passion for supporting young people and women in leadership to succeed and reach their true potential.

It’s no secret that both groups face barriers and challenges in the workplace and in accessing opportunities for varying reasons. I focus on creating sustainable change and giving them the tools and strategies to reach their personal and career goals.


A bit more about me

I’m passionate about…

– Social Entrepreneurship as a catalyst for sustainable change within communities and society

  • – Being an advocate for more visible women role models in leadership and business

– Creating a platform for others to develop their growth mindset through personal development and growth mindset practices

With a proven track record as a leader and change-maker, I’ve worked with various organisations and agencies, such as West Midlands Combined Authority and the Department for Work and Pensions. I’m proud to have offered over 150 young people paid employment and training during a global pandemic.

I started my career as a Social Worker specialising in mental health and children and families. I am a trained Coach and Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner, having worked at the National School of Government. I’ve advised and assisted firms with change management and have a degree in Leadership and Excellence from the University of Worcester.

I’m a proud mama to a brilliant son who is a lawyer and a wonderful human being – kind and gentle-spirited. My fur baby Rosie comes in at a close second, she joins me on my daily grounding 5-mile walks in nature.

Things that I love

In my spare time, you can find me on the dancefloor with my dance partners, willing the night away to Kizomba. When the opportunity arises, I’m in the South of Italy, immersed in the culture, food and festivals.

social entrepreneurship

Ten years ago, I founded a social enterprise, The Future Melting Pot CIC, managing over 150 young people and providing valuable work experience and training, enabling them to transition from unemployment to education and long-term permanent employment. I aim to inspire young people to discover their confidence and self-belief.
