After studying Psychology at Sheffield University in 2002, I worked for a number of charities including Barnardo’s (mentoring young people), Safe@Last (fundraiser) and Leeds City Council (organising large arts event) before becoming CEO at Ignite Imaginations in 2008. I am currently on the steering group for SNAP, and have been a previous board member and chair for the Creative Guild and on the steering group of Sheffield Arts and Well being Network

Outside of Ignite Imaginations I have been involved in running Sharrow Lantern Carnival since 2006 and co manage the craft brewery On the Edge.

I love painting, walking, climbing, generally being outside and gardening! Oh and dancing!
