I began my journey at Forever Manchester as an Outreach Officer back in 2005. Little did I know that many years later I would be the Director of Operations and a member of Forever Manchester’s Senior Leadership Team.

It’s my responsibility to oversee the company’s day-to-day operations, improve operational management system processes and best practice to ensure Forever Manchester is as efficient and cost-effective as possible. This includes managing our facilities and HR, increasing our technological abilities and making sure the team has everything they require to deliver a great quality service to our donors, grant beneficiaries, board of trustees and supporters.

Why I chose this career… I didn’t, I was very lucky – being in the right place at the right time! But I have to admit, although it’s been a lot of hard work to get where I am, its been worth every minute.

Places I love… this is a difficult one as there are many, however if I had to pick it would be the places I’ve been to with my family as these places, whether home or away hold some wonderful memories.

The project I have been most proud of… I wouldn’t necessarily call them a project but the team at Forever Manchester is what I am most proud of.  They are a group of wonderful compassionate people who believe wholeheartedly in the work that we do to fund and support the communities of Greater Manchester.
