I started my 20-year career in retail working for and with brands such as the Co-op and M&S.
When I saw an opportunity to work with Havens Hospices in 2010, it was a unique opportunity to use my retail skills to support the hospice movement that makes a difference to people’s lives.
When I joined, the charity had fourteen shops, and we have expanded this to twenty three.
During this time, I have undertaken my professional HR qualification (CMIPD) and enjoy using these skills and passion to support and help to develop staff and volunteers.
I love working at Havens Hospices as there is a genuine opportunity to support patients and their families who are going through one of the most difficult times of their lives.
My vision is a time where Havens Hospices is recognised as a key collaborator and partner in end of life care delivery and the place to work or volunteer if you are passionate about specialist palliative care.
