"I joined the Ignite Imaginations board in spring 2019 having worked with some of the team in my previous event management roles with Sheffield Food Festival and Illuminate the Gardens. I am currently General Manager at Third Angel theatre company and have been involved in lots of different voluntary organisations, boards and management committees over the years. I hope to be able to make a contribution to the excellent work that Ignite does in our city".
A relative newcomer to the board, my passion for creative education and expanding children’s experiences of and with the arts are what drive me. I’ve been a secondary school teacher for 25 years and continue to push for students to gain a fully rounded education. I endeavour to provide opportunities for partnerships between schools and artists and schools and creative arts organisations.
Chair of The Board
"I have been a board member of Ignite Imaginations for four years and became chair of the board in September 2016. I also work at the Audience Agency as one of their Directors of Consultancy, leading on marketing and audience development consultancy services.
